Documents from "The Store," (1961) and "Ray Gun Theater," (1962) selected by Claes Oldenburg and Emmett Williams. Photographs by Robert R. McElroy. "Store Days is the remainings of the most significant monument of early 60's New York art - the events, theories, works and situations surrounding Claes Oldenburg's Store, which was on the one hand a real place where real sales were made, and on the other a set of ideas whose reverberations are still being felt... Store Days is a selection by the artist, with the aid of Emmett Williams, of texts, graphic materials and photos from 1961-62. The documents are presented as directly as possible, since this is no catalogue but the evocation of a seminal moment." -- publisher's statement.
