We are packing up and getting ready to head up to Maine but one thing I will miss is Andrea Zittel's Smockshop is coming to Chinatown at the end of the week. I am so bummed. I have looked at Zittel's work for years and have enjoyed her"total vision" of her work and the world. The Smockshop is a touring shop and exhibition that showcases over 100 smocks designed by Zittel and interpreted by many other artists- these two are by V. Smiley and Maude Benson. They are orchestrated under Zittel's mantra that "rules make us more creative". The shop opens on July 27th.
