Art & Design Pop-Up Shop by Collector Dean Geleynse

I’m a sucker for Pop-Up Shops. This one, by art collector Dean Geleynse, is hands-down the best I’ve seen to date. Yes, pop-ups are typically curated and stocked with rare or unique items, but how many of these transient retail spaces contain carefully-selected contemporary art and design of the highest order and rival exhibitions in museums and galleries?

Geleynse’s shop-within-a-shop, located inside Fishcake, is perhaps your best chance to kick-start a contemporary art collection without stepping inside a white-cube gallery or visiting an art fair. Rare is the occasion when you can simultaneously see and purchase a piece of quality contemporary art, from around the world, without leaving Oahu, so run, don’t walk, to see this show.

On display, rubbing elbows on a large art wall (not pictured here because, hey, you really should go down there and see these intricate pieces with your own eyes) are works by young, emerging artists as well as established masters. Modern and vintage furniture, not to mention ceramic pieces and other sculptural works, are available for those seeking to add panache to their pads. If you’re currently in a pecuniary pinch, there are ridiculously affordable limited edition prints for $25. If you’ve got the financial wherewithal, be sure to score that sweet color lithograph by Ed Ruscha before it disappears.

The pop-up is open for your viewing and purchasing pleasure as of today, but please don’t miss the opening party at Fishcake on March 22nd, from 6-8 p.m.

Fishcake showcases fresh furnishing, accessories and art for the contemporary home. Dean Geleynse is a Honolulu-based collector who has been acquiring works of contemporary art for over twenty years.
