Commissioned by the 2016 Festival of Live Art, Melbourne
March 2-12, Arts House, North Melbourne Town Hall
FOLA GIFT SHOP by OSCA proposed an economic strategy open to anyone and everyone who would seek to contribute items for sale. Stocked with items from Festival artists and other makers both national and international, FOLA Gift Shop by OSCA was a chance to purchase, participate, exchange and shop in a live art experience where everything must eventually go.
FOLA GIFT SHOP by OSCA is a continuing work in the GOLD COIN SERIES from Paul Gazzola that investigates economic exchange, market values and strategies to artistic survival.
