Work by Creativity Explored artists included in experimental pop-up art retail space in the Mission.
Charlie Barthelet, Peter Cordova, Jessenia Garcia, Claus Groeger, Maribel Guzman, Josué Izquierdo, Loren King, and Hung Kei Shiu are all exhibiting work at Parlor, an experimental pop-up art space opening Thursday, April 20.
A project by Oak + Fog and curator Arianne Gelardin, Parlor is an off-shoot of StoreFrontLab, the undertaking of long-time Creativity Explored supporters David Baker and Yosh Asato. Part community living room, part art house, and part greenhouse, Parlor is an experimental hybrid retail concept integrating the work of local artists and designers into its form and function. An uplifting, sensory setting, Parlor invites the community to stop in, meet new people and experience an evolving collection of artwork.
The spring-summer pop-up will feature a rotating selection of painting and sculpture, unique furniture, tableware, house plants and provisions.
Much like Gordon Matta-Clark’s FOOD restaurant (SoHo, 1971-1974), Parlor is both a retail business and an artistic “intervention in an urban setting.” Parlor’s low-standing communal table encourages visitors to subtly engage with one another, overhearing fragments of conversation and stealing glances with strangers. Special events—such as live music, artist talks, or film screenings—cultivate more direct engagement.
Come support artists working at Creativity Explored by checking out this innovative and thought-provoking space!
