Last Friday was the opening of a brand new traveling pop up store for art called Mini Market at the Silverman Gallery in San Francisco. The goal of the shop is to create both a literal and metaphorical space to challenge the contemporary retail monopoly and shopping monotony. Mini Market offers a unique curated collection of work from local and international designers, collectors, retailers and artists who are invited to sell and display their work. It’s also only open for a month. But the temporary setup was intentional and plays into how the work is presented. It’s possible that items will become sold out. Mini Market intends to keep the store fresh by rearranging, restocking, or leaving empty certain areas as a testament to an items presence, popularity and disappearance.
