A tongue in check joke towards this year’s art go-ers at PULSE during Art Basel Miami, Corner Store was a pop-up micro-convenience store designed to poke a jab at consumer culture. Inspired by the local marts throughout Texas and the southwest region, the store featured an assortment of humor-based products including moustache cream, bottled breath, pre-broken locks and Wolf Meat, all for prices ranging from $29.99 -$99.99.  Presented by Okay Mountain, an Austin-based collective living in Austin, Boston and Chicago who progressed from weekly meetings to collaborative projects producing prints, videos, murals, sound, drawing and large-scale sculptures, the installation featured hand-made products by the collective and won this year’s PULSE Prize.
