TUESDAY DECEMBER 11, 2007 – SATURDAY DECEMBER 22, 2007 There are more than 300 Chinatowns around the world today. Many have disappeared, with new ones are born each year. Storefront for Art and Architecture, in association with Chinatown Film Festival New York, offered a tour of the Chinatowns around the world. Despite clichés, Chinatowns are defined by their differences as much as their similarities. Some are rundown ghettos; others are modern sites for recent development. From large and...

TUESDAY JANUARY 11, 2005 – SATURDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2005 For their first solo exhibition in New York City, Torolab explores the concept of “emergency architecture.” This work is not a response to a singular catastrophic event but rather a means to address the widespread struggle for basic necessities that characterise daily life in cities such as Tijuana.  Tijuana is the fastest growing city in Mexico, at the heart of a trans-border metropolitan region that stretches from Los Angeles in the...

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1, 1986 – SUNDAY FEBRUARY 23, 1986 Across various media such as performance, video, photography, film, models, and constructed environments, Dan Graham’s works investigate space and perception, actor and the audience, as well as the mechanism of vision in shaping public and private life. His projects do not conform to the paired distinctions of art and architecture, public and private, but take them to a new inquiry. As the first to be held at Storefront’s new gallery...

In 1992, architect Steven Holl and artist Vito Acconci were commissioned by co-directors Kyong Park and Shirin Neshat and curator Claudia Gould to transform Storefront for Art and Architecture’s aging facade through a collaborative architectural intervention. Seeking to introduce improbability and to puncture the façade, Acconci and Holl inserted a series of hinged panels arranged in a puzzle-like configuration into the façade. When the panels are locked in their open position, the façade...
