Performance Z-A: a Pavilion for Storefront's 25th Anniversary

Friday September 21, 2007 – Tuesday October 16, 2007

Group Exhibition

Performance Z-A: a Pavilion for Storefront's 25th Anniversary

Twenty-five years ago, in September 1982, Storefront's first public event got underway in its original Prince Street location. Performance A-Z, organized by the gallery's founders Kyong Park and R L Seltman, and artist Arleen Schloss, was a 26-day sequence of performances by New York-based artists. Each of the 26 performers was allocated one evening slot. The event became a manifesto for the gallery's future programming: as Kyong Park wrote in his introduction, "Storefront supports the idea that art and design have the potential and responsibility to affect public policies which influence the quality of life and the future of all cities."

In late September 2007, Storefront will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a new edition of its first event. Entitled Performance Z-A, this 26-day celebration will be hosted in Petrosino Park, adjacent to Storefront, in a specially built pavilion designed by Korean architect Minsuk Cho. Organized by the three directors who have led Storefront over the past 25 years (Kyong Park, Sarah Herda and Joseph Grima), Performance Z-A will be an inclusive event involving not only performance artists but also representatives of all the disciplines that have participated in Storefront's program in the past decades: architects, artists, writers, researchers, filmmakers, photographers, musicians and more. For 26 days, from September 21 to October 16, 2007, the protagonists of Storefront's past, present and future will host 26 evening events including performances, concerts, open discussions, film screenings and interviews.

All events held in Ring Dome (located in Petrosino Park, adjacent to Storefront), at 7pm

The New York Bike-Share Project

Saturday July 7, 2007 – Wednesday July 11, 2007

Forum for Urban Design

The New York Bike-Share Project

A summer charette produced by the  Forum for Urban Design  and Storefront For Art and Architecture 

Daily July 7-11: Free bikes from 97 Kenmare Street and a roving satellite station. 

Imagine walking to a sidewalk corner and finding a public bicycle. With a cellphone call or swipe of a card, you unlock it from its bike rack and ride it across town. Once at your destination, you steer to the closest bike rack and, with one more call or card swipe, return the bike to the public network. You pay less than $.50 for the trip, and the bike is once again available for the taking. 

Bike-sharing already exists in cities across Europe, including Oslo, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Lyon and Frankfurt. Paris alone is currently installing over 10,000 bikes at 750 stations. Bike-sharing is a reality overseas, revolutionizing transportation networks and greening the urban fabric. How could it launch in New York? 

From July 7-11, 2007, the Forum For Urban Design, partnering with Storefront for Art and Architecture, introduced New Yorkers to bike-sharing through a highly-visible, five-day design charette. Located at one of the most exciting street corners in Lower Manhattan, The New York Bike-Share Project consisted of three parts: an experimental bike-share (free bike rentals!), an exhibition of European successes, and a design charette with public presentations. 

Schedule of events 
July 7-11, ALL DAY: Free 30-minute bike rentals from 97 Kenmare Street and a second bike-share “station” whose location changed each day. 
July 9, 6:00 pm: Public presentation of bike share programs in Barcelona, Stockholm and Oslo 
July 10, 6:00 pm: Pamplona, Lyon and Paris 
July 11, 6:00 pm: Presentation of the charette results and closing reception 

The Experiment (free bike rentals!) 
From July 7-11, New Yorkers and tourists alike enjoyed free 30-minute rides between Storefront for Art and Architecture (97 Kenmare St.) and a second bike-share station. Locations for the second station included the Hudson River Park, Washington Square Park, Williamsburg, City Hall, and SoHo. 

The Exhibition 
Storefront for Art and Architecture (97 Kenmare St.) hosted a exhibition of European bike-share programs and the people who use them. It was open to the public from July 7-11. 

The Charette 
The Forum For Urban Design facilitated a public charette to imagine a future bike-share program in New York City. Public presentations from design and transportation experts took place on July 9 and 10. Final charette results were published on nybikeshare.org.

The Website 
Our website  www.nybikeshare.org  streamed real-time text and video blogging of the New York Bike-Share Project throughout its five days.

CCCP: Small Talks

Tuesday June 12, 2007

CCCP: Small Talks

To mark the closing of the exhibition CCCP: Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed , Storefront hosted two lectures by eminent architecture historians on the influences and inspirations behind Soviet architecture of the '70s and '80s. The lectures were followed by a reception and a late viewing of the exhibition.

Tuesday, June 12

Anna Bronovitskaja: Soviet Architecture 1970-1989

How could such unusual and eclectic architecture be produced in a era notorious for mass-prefabrication and highly-standardized construction processes? This talk offered an insight into the social and cultural context into which the buildings documented in the CCCP exhibition were born, with specific reference to key events such as the exhibition of Finsterlin drawings in the Moscow Museum of Architecture or the construction of a Buckminster Fuller pavilion in the 'America' exhibition in Sokolniki.

Anna Bronovitskaja is editor of Moscow-based architecture magazines Project Russia and Project International. She is also Associated Professor at Moscow Institute of Architecture, and the co-author of the guide-book Moscow Architecture

Saturday, June 16

Anna Sokolina: Architecture as Collateral Damage: War Memorials and Rebirth of Patriotism in Soviet Russia

This talk traced the role of monuments and war memorials within the framework of constructed social utopias, touching on issues of looting and provenance in art, the designs of war memorials across Russia and Eastern Europe and the global discourse of totalitarian architecture and democracy. Tracing the parallels between Khrushchev’s Thaw (1960s), Brezhnev’s Stagnation (1970s) and Gorbachev’s Glasnost (1980s) and their resonances in Soviet Modernism, Technologism, and Postmodernism, this lecture offered an insight into the architectural manifestations of mass propaganda, political delusion and deception, and the climax, twilight, and demise of Communist Utopia.

Anna Sokolina is an architecture/art historian and Assistant Professor at Miami University School of Fine Arts Department of Architecture and Interior Design. Sokolina received her Ph.D. in Architecture from the Russian Academy of Architecture and Construction Sciences Research Institute for Theory of Architecture, and M.Arch. from the Moscow Architectural Institute. She is currently working on two book projects, Architecture Behind the Iron Curtain: Russia and East Germany 1945-1990, and second edition of Architecture and Anthroposophy.

The CCCP Small Talks were made possible thanks to the generous support of the Trust for Mutual Understanding.


Tuesday May 29, 2007 – Saturday June 2, 2007

BLDGBLOG, City of Sound, Inhabitat, and Subtopia


Postopolis! is a five-day event of near-continuous conversation about architecture, urbanism, landscape, and design. Four bloggers, from four different cities, will host a series of live discussions, interviews, slideshows, panels, talks, and other presentations, and fuse the informal energy and interdisciplinary approach of the architectural blogosphere with the immediacy of face to face interaction.



BLDGBLOG (Los Angeles), City of Sound (London),Inhabitat (New York City), and Subtopia (San Francisco) will meet in person to orchestrate the event, inviting everyone from practicing architects, city planners, and urban theorists to military historians, game developers, and materials scientists to give their take on both the built and natural environments. For the past five years, blogging has helped to expand the bounds of architectural discussion; its influence now spreads far beyond the internet to affect museums, institutions, and even higher education. Postopolis! is an historic opportunity to look back at what architecture blogs have achieved – both to celebrate their strengths and to think about their future.

Six Square

Thursday September 16, 1999 – Saturday October 2, 1999

Julia Mandle

Six Square

Six Square, a site-specific dance performance conceived by the Brooklyn-based experimental arts company J Mandle Performance, turned the space of Storefront inside-out. Dancers manipulated the positions of the rotating façade panels as they navigated between the threshold of the interior and the exterior of the gallery. This spatial investigation was mirrored in the multi-layered costumes worn by the dancers. Similar to the panels, the costumes were transformed by the dancers throughout the duration of the piece, calling into question the convergence of interior and exterior space, whether physical or psychological. As the performance took over the gallery and sidewalk, the audience was relocated to the street, challenging the traditional experience of viewing a performance.
