In 2005, artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset constructed a fake Prada Store in the remote countryside of Marfa, Texas. Stocked with shoes and bags they threw an opening party with the intention of creating a surreal experience for the attendees. The adobe structure was meant to be a hyper-realistic sculpture of a luxury store. Three days after the project was completed people tagged the building, and broke in stealing handbags and shoes.

Having passed away last year, and being such a pivotal figure in hip-hop, graffiti, and experimental culture and art in general, his inclusion in the show, and to this capacity, was essential.
