TRUNK SHOW book
Edited by Raven Falquez Munsell and Jesse Malmed
Designed by Aaron Walker
TRUNK SHOW was a mobile exhibition space that ran from 2013-2016 and was operated by Jesse Malmed and Raven Falquez Munsell.
Each month, artists were commissioned to design limited edition bumper stickers which lived, rode along with and helped propel a medium beat-up forest green Ford Taurus owned by Raven and Jesse. Stickers are available online, from the trunk and by subscription. In addition to the month-long exhibitions, the bumper stickers were sold à la carte and by annual subscription. Openings followed a nomadic, symbiotic logic and included a public affixing, conceptual catering and playlists.
The TRUNK SHOW publication compiles bound up press releases, ephemera, texts from the project, and images of each opening, all offered up in a stylized manual which comes with a poster that you can affix to your wall or bumper.
With essays by Dana Bassett, Anthony Stepter and a conversation between Dan Miller and Davi Lakind.
