Grocery Art Gallery/Used Car Lot

 

Grocery Art Gallery/Used Car Lot was a collaborative performance piece by Austin Plann-Curley and Jaimes Mayhew. In the Fall of 2004, we placed our A-sign outside of the Safeway on Broadway Avenue in Seattle”s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Jaimes gave tours of the grocery store, framing it as a series of installations, sculpture and performances of “workers” in the store. Austin attempted to sell cars that were parked in the grocery store parking lot to passersby. The performance lasted for about one hour.
