Two separate garage sales:

 

Sentimental Garage Sale, (video stills)

For Sentimental Garage Sale I assign a monetary value to all of my possessions. Each item is priced based on its sentimental value to me: A new and working camera is priced at $1 while my Armenian grandmother’s passport is priced at $1,000.

Miami Art Dealers Garage Sale

For Miami Art Dealers Garage Sale I presume the role of the dealer and sell the personal items of local gallerists. Rather than situating the sale at a gallery, the garage sale takes place in the yard of an art collector, the typical site of the patron and purchased works. I pay the gallerist 50% of the earnings made on their items. The sale is advertised to the art community and public.
