Playing with the Anton Kern Gallery WINDOW space peculiarities — a gallery that can only be seen from the outside and never entered — and referencing its location in Lower Manhattan near Soho, Julie Curtiss has organized The Shoo Sho, inspired by the Shoe Store window displays that populate the area.
With an array of works that riff on the concept of the shoe and its potential materials and display, the exhibition offers a quirky, diverse, and fun opportunity to contemplate the Shoo for both its ordinary purpose and its extraordinary form as a coveted and luxurious accessory.
