Storefront Art & Architecture  Producing, Connecting, and Exhibiting Futures

Install underway for "Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City!" The project acts, in part, as a sensing device: the façade of Storefront’s gallery space is clad by @theliving.studio in wood, a simple bio-receptive material sandblasted to harness its natural forms. During the course of the exhibition, accreted genetic material will be extracted and analyzed from the tiles on the façade, as well as others installed in particular sites across New York City.

Join us for the public opening of Subculture *tomorrow*, September 18th from 7–9 pm, and learn more about the project via link in bio. -

"Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City" opens a week from tomorrow! The exhibition—a collaboration between @theliving.studio, @ehenaff, and @slavin_fpo with the support of @evaneisman—brings together work in biology, data science, materials science, and design to flip the notion of a “healthy” city on its sterile head. With an aim to understand the microbial elements of a healthy city, an active metagenomic sequencing laboratory in Storefront’s gallery space will explore the invisible ecologies of the built environment and provoke broader considerations of our urban fabric.

"Letters to the Mayor: São Paulo" occurred at a moment of heightened political engagement, a few months before the election of the city's new mayor. A diverse group of architects came together to reflect upon the challenges and opportunities facing Brazil's largest city. The exhibition was accompanied by a series of conversations with the public, amplifying momentum about the future of the city.

Curated by Bruno de Almeida and Fernando Falcon, presented at Pivô Arte e Pesquisa, wallpaper design by Branco Papel de Parede in collaboration with the artist Lucas Simões.

In 2016, Storefront hosted a dual Taiwan edition of "Letters to the Mayor" in Taipei AND Taichung - the first iterations of the project in Asia! Forums with architects and local officials during the exhibition focused on issues such as the role of the architect in mediating the rapid urban development in these two cities. The Mayor of Taichung responded to all of the letters in a public event. -
Interested in continuing the conversation? Comment or DM us your thoughts, ideas, visions, and projects for Taipei and Taichung.

Presented in partnership with JUT Foundation for the Arts and Architecture, curated by JUT Foundation for the Arts and Architecture (Taipei) and David Tseng (Taichung), mayoral table and architect’s desk designed by 3 pounds Co. Ltd.

This is the last week to see "Architecture Books – Yet to be Written," an exhibition that invites us to reflect upon the cultural contribution of architecture through the medium of the book from 1982 to today. With an archeological and projective twist, the installation seeks to celebrate and evaluate both the existing and the missing volumes of a history still in the writing.

Letters to the Mayor invites architects to write a letter to their city mayor as a means of bringing innovative ideas and visions of the city closer to the decision-makers. Taking the form of an exhibition and a series of public debates between architects, the mayor, and citizens at large, Letters to the Mayor creates a forum for the discussion of the future of cities and the built environment. Check our website to learn about the more than eighteen iterations of the project: storefrontnews.org/programming/letters-to-the-mayor/
