Last night PSFK experienced some custom reenactments of the New York City street art scene. Near life-size photographs of aged store fronts were plastered up on a rooftop in Nolita, embellished by artwork from a selection of 28 graffiti and street artists. Titled Mom & Popism, the exhibit was presented by Gawker Artists. Mom & Popism is a celebration of pop culture and the heritage of the city’s hidden treasures. Interpreting the book Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York by James and Karla Murray, graffiti artist Billi Kid curated this exhibition. As small stores disappear and street art is washed away, Mom & Popism is criticizing the clean cut, condo covered New York with a smile and a spray of paint.

MOM & POPism will be open to public on Saturday, August 15th from noon to 4 p.m. 210 Elizabeth Street, 4th Floor. Additional exhibition viewings are available by appointment throughout August.
