TateShots explores Rob Pruitt's Flea Market, Tate Modern, 12-13 December 2009



American artist Rob Pruitt brought his Holiday Flea Market to Tate Modern in the run up to Christmas. First staged in New York in 1999, the event started as a novel way to curate a group exhibition, with artists selling wares such as prints, home-made objects, bric-a-brac and more. This London incarnation brought together many enterprising young artists, as well as bigger names such as Gavin Turk and Tracey Emin. TateShots was accompanied by curator Kathy Noble to see what was on offer.
