A shop within a shop

An art project commissioned and produced by Artangel, the shop is run and staffed jointly by four religious charities chosen by Miranda July: Islamic Relief, Jewish charity Norwood, London Buddhist Centre, and Spitalfields Crypt Trust.

Items for sale will be typical of those traditionally sold in charity shops: second-hand clothes, books, games, DVDs, kitchenware, toys ornaments and bric-a-brac. Prices are the same as in any charity shop and all profits are shared equally between the four charities.

2.5%

Net sales are divided equally between the four participating charity shops.

Each is donating 2.5% of their share to another charity of their choice: Spitalfields Crypt Trust to Providence Row, Islamic Relief to The Bike Project, London Buddhist Centre to Praxis Community Project, and Norwood to Carers in Hertfordshire.

Artangel

For over three decades Artangel has commissioned and produced extraordinary art in unexpected places: at home in London, across the UK and around the world.

Working with artists such as Clio Barnard, Rachel Whiteread, Steve McQueen and PJ Harvey, Artangel have realised projects that can materialise anywhere: from vacant apartment stores, to subterranean vaults, to the night sky over London. Artangel produces art that inspires, challenges perceptions and simply wouldn’t be possible within the confines of a gallery, theatre or concert hall.
