Vancouver artist Ryan Smith and 01 Magazine are launching their concept pop-up shop this Friday, June 1st at 8 East Cordova. Designed to function as a convenience store bodega, the space will be filled with everything you need from ashtrays to photocopies (as well as local art and music), this project references the often overlooked aesthetic of the traditional bodega and features the efforts of many Vancouver artists. It's going to be very cool - trust us!
