Alice Hope: Priceless Big Reveal Canceled – But Will Remain On View Starting 11/5
The installation will be complete in the windows of 8 Jobs Lane starting Thursday, November 5 and will remain on view for up to 6 months or when the shop is once again occupied. SAC will continue to work with Morley Property Management on the Storefront Art Project, assisting any willing landlords with vacant shops to animate their windows with dynamic art installations. SAC’s Storefront Art Project has been made possible, in part, thanks to the Long Island Community Foundation.
Located in the former Chico’s at 8 Jobs Lane, ALICE HOPE: Priceless is a multimedia art “wind-stallation” made with accordioned chromed coat hangers, paper price tags, and strung can tabs.
Of the project, Artist Alice Hope says “While assembling this installation, my query has been: What’s priceless? I hope for this unanswered question to be the subject of this installation, my first in a store front. In our commodified world and in this commodified discipline, where value equates success, I’m aspiring to transform tens of thousands of blank price tags, a vast population of ephemera, into evanescence.”
