SHAPES TO CUDDLE

POP-UP SHOW AND SALE 

279 Broome St. New York, NY

November 3rd, 5-9pm &

November 4th,  12-9pm

In 2005 Allan McCollum designed a system to create a unique shape for every person on the planet. Since then he has been producing and constructing the shapes with and through various materials and methods. He has worked with artists and craftspeople to see the Shapes Project  take the form of cookie cutters, rubber stamps, buttons, wooden ornaments, hand-cut silhouettes and more.

 

Marcie Paper translates her memory-based abstract paintings into prints and patterns. These prints and patterns are then used to create one of a kind block-printed textiles, hand-painted tiles, weavings, wall-paintings and public art pieces.

As an extension of Allan McCollum’s Shapes Project, Marcie Paper has designed and hand block-printed twenty-four different patterns and stripes for the 144 Shapes to Cuddle on view. Each of the cotton and linen shapes is stuffed by hand and features a different combination of prints and stripes. The Shapes to Cuddle are sized to be held and loved by people of all ages but were made specifically with children in mind.

 

A pop-up show of shapes for sale will be on view from 5-9pm, November 3rd and 12-9pm, November 4th at 279 Broome St. on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
