NEW YORK (AP) — A garage sale as performance art?

That's what one artist will be staging at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Visitors will be able to rummage through and buy such classic garage sale items as used clothing, books, mementos and other bric-a-brac.

The stuff will be donated by the artist, Martha Rosler, her family, friends, the general public and museum staff.

Rosler will run the "Meta-Monumental Garage Sale" daily during the Nov. 17 to Nov. 30 installation. It will fill a second-floor atrium of the museum.

She's a New York multimedia performance artist known for focusing on the commonplace. She has been presenting garage sales for decades.

The MoMA installation is her latest iteration of the garage sale as an art form of contemporary society.
