By: Claes Oldenburg, 1967

In the winter of 1961, Claes Oldenburg maneuvered the gallery system of selling art and instead, opened a storefront in the LES. It was 80 feet long and 10 feet wide, filled with sculptures of underwear and fake food. For 10 weekends it became a theatre where volunteer actors gathered and performed wordless plays.

Store Days is a selection by the artist, with the aid of Emmett Williams, of texts graphic materials and photos from 1961-1962. The book recaps this living art piece, including photographs of the artworks and scripts of theatrical pieces, among other treasures.
