Petrella's Imports

Located between Bowery and Canal stPetrella’s Imports (2013) is conceived as a hybrid reconstitution at a time when the originary purpose of the newsstand as ‘source of information’ diminishes. Petrella’s Imports aims to both re-imagine the offerings of these nodes of distribution and apply a different solution to their serviceability.

Artists Anne LibbyElise McMahon, and Sophie Stone works with a large number of creative collaborators in order to assemble a surrogate inventory of items (magazines and newspapers as well as postcards, prepackaged food, umbrellas, and cigarettes) found typically at commercial newsstands.
