Market Days: Saturday and Sunday May 7-8 (from 1 to 7 pm)
“Here, the strangest markets operate where the value of each object depends on the desires it excites.” Jules Verne, Five Weeks in a Balloon, 1863
Parker’s Box is delighted to announce its fifth annniversary, and in the true spirit of this celebration, we have invited a houseful of guests (artists, galleries, art publications, activists and nonprofits) to participate in a three day art “market” event that turns the tables on galleries representing artists, in order to have a number of artists “represent” their galleries through specific projects presented together under the same conditions and in similar spaces.
