Kiosk: An independent stand from which merchandise is sold, often placed in the common area of a shopping center.
Kiosk is located in SoHo, New York. We offer a curated range of products from all over the world in an exhibition format. Everything is sourced during our travels; we build our collections while away and then feature what we find at KIOSK for 4 - 6 months. Our current show is AMERICA #3, in addition we also have an “Ongoing” collection of objects from previous exhibitions.
KIOSK is a travel story depicted through objects, a collection of interesting things from around the world, a study of material culture, a shop, several people's efforts to preserve unique and indigenous objects, an installation, maybe just something other than what we are used to. At KIOSK we feature the things that generally go unnoticed, products that are the result of local aesthetics and needs. Our motivation is to give attention to these anonymous objects and support independent producers. Hopefully what we share encourages you to go out and meet and talk and learn and see and show.
KIOSK is not static. We are not able to predict our stock as it is decided by each trip. Sometimes certain goods are only offered on a very limited basis. There is always a mix of things. We hope the objects assembled together create a rough portrait of each location and tell about a place and it’s people.
Hope to see you at the shop!
