Special Special presents a playground-inspired retail pop-up at MGM featuring playful artworks and products that engage people of all ages to participate in an intimate shopping experience and to interact with several special curatorial projects. As a platform for creative dialogue, we have extended conversation from our New York based gallery across the world to Macau.
At MGM, the pop-up retail space acts as the Special Special home base for projects that extend throughout the entire resort; including an in-room experience inviting people to draw a room they love or to envision their ideal stay and to add the drawing to a collective installation in our retail space. Video pieces relating to this project and several more are displayed in the lobby of the casino and resort, engaging those beyond the pop-up shop and inviting them to visit our retail pop-up. Special Special’s presence features site-specific curatorial projects by Aria McManus, Lu Zhang, Sarah Verity, and Will Doenlen.
