The Poster Shop by Matthew Marks
Matthew Marks Gallery has installed a sort of Victorian bookshop above one of their galleries on 22nd street. This emporium of original works of art, rare books, signed catalogues, multiples, vintage rock posters from the 1960′s, and much more will feature many hard-to-find objects. It’s a very last minute thing, but the impetus was that Marks wanted the gallery’s arsenal of collectibles see the light of day. It’s hidden away upstairs with incredible rare books, signed catalogues, signed posters and small works of art. Most things are under 100 bucks, but nothing is more than $5000.
The Shop’s 2000-square-foot space above the Matthew Marks Gallery in a 19th-century fire station has the offbeat, welcoming feel of an old loft. Visitors are invited to browse items by Robert Adams, Darren Almond, David Armstrong, Nayland Blake, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Katharina Fritsch, Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Roni Horn, Gary Hume, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Mike Kelley, Willem de Kooning, Inez van Lamsweerde, Roy Lichtenstein, Brice Marden, Charles Ray, Ed Ruscha, Sam Taylor-Wood, Richard Serra, Josh Smith, Tony Smith, Terry Winters and others.
The Poster Shop will be open for the holidays from Friday, December 10 through Thursday, December 23.
Hours: 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., Tuesday through Saturday. 523 West 22nd St. New York
