01 Magazine Presents Ryry's Ultimate Bodega


Tonight is the opening party for Ryry's Ultimate Bodega, a pop-up shop and functional art installation by Ryan Smith in collaboration with 01 Magazine. Ryan’s fascination with the low-brow decor, random convenience objects, and multiple odd services offered at bodegas were the inspiration for this project. The fully functioning copy shop and convenience store was designed and built by some of Vancouver’s notable artists, showing everyday useful items that have been redesigned and re-purposed into inexpensive, limited pieces of art with an intentional “anti-design” aesthetic. Join us tonight for the Grand Opening party at the Bodega (8 East Cordova, Vancouver), and afterparty at Caffe Brixton (212 East Georgia St.)! Tunes by Ryry, who also heads Green Burrito Records.- Jennilee
