Pop Up Priceless Chapel is a new approach to the standard gallery exhibition. It “Pops Up” in any city, at any space, for one night and offers a body of work by Daniel Patrick Helmstetter with a $0 price tag. The highest amount offered at the end of the night becomes the selling price.
Pop Up Priceless Chapel has appeared in traditional gallery settings, in experimental spaces and non-art settings. The concept, first coined by Helmstetter and Klaudia Oliver in 2010, explores ideas of value and pricing structures within a changing art market, allowing the viewer to determine the worth of the work.
The Priceless Chapel plans to travel this year. It most recently popped up in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico in January, and will be followed by Newark NJ, Los Angeles CA, NYC and more. Currently the artist is accepting offers to bring the Priceless Chapel to different cities during 2013.
Join Solo(s) Project House Friday, Feb. 22nd for the first Newark Priceless Chapel. SPH recently represented Helmstetter at Fountain Art Fair this past fall during Miami Art Basel and was home to Danny’s Continental Cocktail Lounge in 2011. In addition to hosting the chapel, SPH will represent his work during NY Art Week in March.
