The agency ALLDAYEVERYDAY has built a pop-up zine store in the middle of a Brooklyn subway stop.
We wish this temporary exhibit could stay in the humid depths of this station. AnimalNY created a video (embedded above) and a feature about the Newsstand project. Check it out:
For the past few weeks, commuters at the Lorimer/Metropolitan L/G subway stop have been privy to a bit of routine-breaking magic. In the place of an ordinary newsstand, hawking candy bars, bottles of water, and outdated magazines, is the Newsstand–a temporary space devoted to selling art of all kinds, its shelves overflowing with zines, records, novels, and photographs. There’s even a mini-zine vending machine, which serves up a mystery art book to anyone with four quarters to spare.
The collection of zines in the subway shop was curated by Lele Saveri from the 8-Ball Zine Fair.
You can read more about the shop and see pictures at the agency website.
