The Society inc. Collector's Sidewalk Show

As a way to encourage people’s interactivity with museums and to ignite excitement & justify one’s own collections (amateur as they may be), in the 90s museums began to hold ‘The People’s Show’. This was a form of public exhibition where everyday people could bring their own treasured collections to the local museum and show them off to other like-minded collectors and passer-by’s.

As my extensive collections at The Society inc. have often been referred to as a treasure trove I have decided that it would be the perfect place to hold a People’s Show. All of my favourite artists and friends will bring along their favourite collections, and you can bring some of your treasures as well! Items will be available for sale or for swap. Or just to show off if you can’t bear to part with it. Your collection does not need to be expensive, it does not need to be normal, but it must be what you are mysteriously drawn to.

Just like our fleamarkets, we’re setting up shop on the footpath! We’re going to take it a step further with our People’s Show: bring a blanket, fill your carboot with goods and open your trunk toward the shop. The Society inc. Collector’s Sidewalk Show is all about generating discussion and conversation- a modern day collector’s salon.

Come along- bring your stuff to swap, sell, show-off & discuss with other like-minded people! BYO
