The smockshop is an artist run enterprise that generates income for artists whose work is either non-commercial, or not yet self sustaining. A smock is a simple double wrap around garment designed by Andrea Zittel - then sewn by artists who reinterpret the original design. As an active testament to Zittel’s principle that "rules make us more creative", each resulting smock is completely unique and one of a kind.
In 2010 the smockshop was concluded and is now being archived. A follow up project under the working title "The group formerly known as smockshop" is now underway.
The List of smockers includes: Tiprin Follet, Kate Hillseth, Donna Huanca, Molly Keogh, Tony Koerner, Peggy Pabustan, Ashira Siegel, V Smiley, Sophie Tusler, Michelle Brunnick, Emily Bult, Sonja Cvitkovic, Jennifer Durban, Karen Gelardi, Hadassa Goldvicht, Carole Frances Lung, Mark Rodriguez, Mariana Saldana, Jason Villegas, Maude Benson, Claire Fong
