Sarah Staton (born 1961) is an artist based in London, England, whose diverse practice melds sculpture, painting, architecture, design, publishing, fashion, and technology to create objects and spaces that are simultaneously aesthetic and utilitarian. Initiated in 1993, Sarah Staton's SupaStore started as a DIY art sale experiment that has transpired at dozens of museums, galleries, and alternative venues over the years, most recently at Midway Contemporary Art in Minneapolis. Over one hundred artists, ranging from up-and-coming contemporaries, unknowns, and established artists have had a piece they created for sale at the SupaStore. SupaStore Human - We are the Product reflects how technology and automation has impacted social interaction, commerce, and manufacturing. As the goddess of art, trade, handicrafts and wisdom, Minerva (in her many guises) has become the public face of the SupaStore and represents the classical origins of these now mechanized exchanges.
Join us for the official public opening of SupaStore Human - We are the Product on Friday, December 15 (6-8pm) with artist talk at 6:45pm. Both the workshop and the opening reception are free and open to the public. SupaStore Human will be on view through February 2018.
