With the aim to unleash everyone’s inner critic through sartorial guise, Storefront for Art and Architecture will present the 2014 Critical Halloween Party and Costume Competition on October 31st.
Following themes and ghosts of year’s past including on Banality, Metaphor and Corporate-Avantgarde, this year’s theme dwells on one of the most feared ghosts of art and architectural production: relevance. Considering the dark powers of our increasingly digital world and an online culture that propels banality to stardom, where mimes become essays and traditional forms of expression often vanish, this year’s event asks artists, architects, writers, citizens and cats to address the concept of Irrelevance within contemporary culture and contemporary digital platforms.
From obsolete terms, forms, ideologies, philosophical movements to emerging economic systems or aesthetic languages, from Irrelevant to I-Relevant, we invite you to bring your thoughts into your costume.
