Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market and Artist Talk
January 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - January 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
In conjunction with the exhibition Happy!, NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale brings Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market to Fort Lauderdale on January 18 and 19, 2020. The internationally renowned contemporary artist, who The New York Times has called one of the art world’s most popular provocateurs, has been staging his nomadic flea markets around the world since 1999 in locations from New York to London’s Tate Museum. Pruitt is inviting local artists and vendors to sell their wares during the two-day happening, which will be held at NSU Art Museum.
Taking the form of a traditional open-air bazaar, Rob Pruitt’s flea market is an opportunity to meet artists and take home an original artwork in a relaxed atmosphere. By highlighting bartering and haggling as both economic and performative, and featuring a diverse array of goods from artwork to housewares, Pruitt’s Flea Market blurs the line between art and commerce.
The Flea Market will be open Saturday, January 18, 11 AM – 5 PM and Sunday, January 19, Noon – 5 PM. Admission is free to the public.
Rob Pruitt will also give a talk on Saturday, January 18 at 2PM.
