Present Company is pleased to announce Pretty Conceptual, the second iteration of our ongoing Present Projects series. Hosted in the back room of our gallery, these temporary invasions by guest colleagues serve to compliment our exhibition programming through experimental entrepreneurial endeavors. .
Pretty Conceptual is a concept store tailored to pretty conceptual lifestyles. It appeals to those who analyze the semiotics of greeting cards but never end up sending one; crave the latest gadgets but fetishize glitches and outmoded media; and enjoy products that poetically fail to live up to their grandiose promises.
Products span numerous lifestyle categories, including mind alteration, self-improvement, cutting-edge technology and fashion. You will find things that you didn’t know you needed. Prices will defy expectations.
Pretty Conceptual features products by Angie Waller, Badlands Unlimited, Eric Doeringer, David Horvitz, Katarina Jerinic, Kristin Lucas, Sarah Nicholls, Yoshua Okón, Emily Spivack, Squareeater, Ryland Wharton, and Julia Weist.
