2014 Spring Benefit: On the Fringe (of Fundamentals)



MARCH 11, 2014

Honoring Meredith Monk and Olafur Eliasson


Storefront for Art and Architecture’s 2014 Spring Benefit: On the Fringe (of Fundamentals) will toast Storefront’s appointment as the Commissioner of the U.S. Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. 


In response to “Fundamentals: Absorbing Modernity,” Rem Koolhaas’ theme for this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale Storefront will present OfficeUS, an experimental project that investigates the contributions of US architecture offices over the last 100 years. On March11. 2014 we will celebrate the launch of this project and Storefront’s commitment to fearless work that reflects on fundamentals in art and architecture through the support of alternative practices. The event will take place at Capitale, the old Savings Bank headquarters on the Bowery designed by Stanford White, of McKim, Mead, and White, and built in 1893 in a Roman Classical Style. That night, On the Fringe will honor two fundamental figures for Storefront: Olafur Eliasson and Meredith Monk.
