ATM Cigarettes Flowers Lottery / God Bless Deli 2 explores the dynamic of the bodega aesthetically and theoretically. Bodegas feed addiction and desire, providing sustenance in the form of Philly Cheesesteaks, honey buns, lottery tickets, pantyhose, condoms, and ramen. Their accessibility and uniformity allows for consistency and shelter and camaraderie- 24 hours a day. Each bodega takes on the unique form and identity of its owners, employees, customers, and surrounding neighborhoods, resulting in a bodega is as rich and culturally diverse as it’s visitors. In contrast with large, sterile supermarkets that supply us with necessities, the bodega- often intimate and quaint- houses many of our guilty pleasures and nostalgic inclinations. The artists involved take a variety of approaches to the theme; some consider the formal and tactile relationships with the bodega itself, while others look at the changing socio-economic landscapes of New York City, and the shift that that gentrification implies for locally-owned bodegas.

ATM Cigarettes Flowers Lottery / God Bless Deli 2 opens on September 29th, 2017 and takes place simultaneously at two Brooklyn galleries: Wayfarers Gallery and Space Heater Gallery. An interactive scavenger hunt will take place on opening night, leading visitors through bodegas on a search for artwork, as they walk from one gallery to the other.
