The current exhibition at the d.u.m.b.o. arts center, "Point of Purchase" (PoP), explores the American fascination with shopping. Curated by Gretchen Wagner of the Museum of Modern Art, the show features works in a variety of media by 13 artists, including Monika Sziladi. In her series "On Display," Sziladi mines window tableaux for inspiration. (A detail of her "Wired" is pictured at left.)

Also featured in PoP, Julia Christensen’s video documents how communities have transformed abandoned Wal-Mart, Kmart and Target box stores in unusual ways, while Rosemary Williams explores her reactions to St. Paul, Minnesota’s Mall of America in her immense installation.

"Point of Purchase" is on display at the d.u.m.b.o. arts center (30 Washington St. at Water Street in DUMBO) through Sept. 24. Gallery hours are Thursday through Monday, from 10 am to 6 pm. For more information, call (718) 694-0831.
