Members of Storefront for Art and Architecture are invited to a tour of ALL THAT IS SOLIDthe current exhibition at PROXYCO Gallery. The tour will be led by artist Pablo Gómez Uribe. 

 
Pablo Gómez Uribe uses his practice to investigate manifestations of social and political conflicts in urban environments, highlighting how traumatic events create new literal and psychological landscapes in cities. Gómez Uribe has previously worked with Storefront as the designer of the mayoral desk and architect’s table for Letters to the Mayor: Bogotá.
 
ALL THAT IS SOLID showcases recent work by Gómez Uribe that explores the notion of architecture as progress. The exhibition presents material tests for the building of a new fictional city, “Medenyal,” which has roots that lie in the demolished buildings of the artist’s hometown of Medellín. The show also puts forth proposals for new types of bricks made from the ruins of buildings and other materials, as well as exploratory artworks that problematize the relationships between memory and industry, culture and displacement, and dilapidation and development. 
 
HOW TO RSVP
 
This tour is open to members of Storefront for Architecture. To attend, please RSVP here by Tuesday, December 11th, 2018. A wine reception will follow the event. 
 
If you’d like to join Storefront’s membership program in order to attend the tour, see here for more information and email membership@storefrontnews.org.

Subculture Open Lab Days

With Dr. Elizabeth Hénaff

Friday, November 2nd, 2018 and Friday, December 14th, 2018

11 am – 6 pm

Open to all

 

Storefront’s current exhibition Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City brings together work in biology, data science, material science to to reframe the value of microbial communities found in urban spaces. As an active laboratory for metagenomic sequencing, the gallery space explores the invisible ecologies and genetic landscapes of the built environment through the practice and study of genetic material collected directly from environmental samples across New York City.

 

On two Fridays this fall, the laboratory will be active and open to all to view. Dr. Elizabeth Hénaff, a computational biologist and one of the exhibition collaborators, will conduct the second and third rounds of DNA sequencing as part of the ongoing experiment.

 

Stop by at any point during these two Fridays to learn more about the process from Dr. Hénaff and Storefront’s staff.

 

Bioinformatics for Environmental Metagenomics 101: Introduction to DNA Sequencing and Analysis

With Dr. Elizabeth Hénaff

Saturday, November 10th, 2018

97 Kenmare Street

2 – 4 pm

RSVP required. Capacity capped at 20. If you are interested in attending, please email subculture@storefrontnews.org with a brief statement about your relevant interests and background.

 

What is the DNA of the city?

 

Utilizing technological innovations of web-based, open source, and small-scale genetic sequencing devices, it is possible to collect, extract, sequence, and analyze microbial life of our immediate environments through novel and rapidly evolving techniques.

 

Bioinformatics for Environmental Metagenomics 101: Introduction to DNA Sequencing and Analysis, led by Dr. Elizabeth Hénaff, provides an introduction to the molecular structure of DNA through the basics of transcription and translation. Participants will learn about the current methods of “reading” sequences through the use of both short- and long- read DNA sequencing technologies. Using a sample dataset that includes metagenomic data from Subculture, participants will employ online tools to perform sequence alignments and searches, gaining an understanding of the applications and interpretations of this data for environmental metagenomics.

 

As as part of Subculture (and for use in this workshop), genetic material has been extracted from the bio-receptive wooden tiles installed on Storefront’s façade for analysis and interpretation. The materials, exposed directly to their environments, undergo a process designed to indicate the metabolic functions of the geographically-specific microbiome found on Kenmare Street. In this 101 workshop, participants will have the opportunity learn about the underlying principles and processes of the ongoing experiment at Storefront.

 

Interrogation Series: Across Scales and Species will follow Bioinformatics for Environmental Metagenomics 101; for more information, see HERE.

 

Requirements for participants for 101:

– Laptop computer with a web browser. Tablet use is possible but not recommended.

 

Bioinformatics for Environmental Metagenomics 202: Interpreting the Microbiome for Design

With Dr. Elizabeth Hénaff and Blacki Migliozzi

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

97 Kenmare Street

1 – 4 pm

RSVP required. Capacity capped at 10. If you are interested in attending please email subculture@storefrontnews.org with a brief statement about your relevant interests and background.

 

We are increasingly aware of the invisible and ubiquitous microbial component of our lives – in and on our bodies and in our environments. But, how do we actually measure these? What if we want to determine which bacteria are living around us?

 

In Bioinformatics for Environmental Metagenomics 202: Interpreting the Microbiome for Design, participants will learn the methods for identifying microbial species with DNA sequencing data, understand their functions, and explore their implications for urban design decisions. The workshop will utilize the dataset acquired for Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City. Participants will learn about file formats used for sequencing data and how to manipulate them, and will gain hands-on experience with computational tools used to identify bacterial species, their genes, and methods for visualizing the results that are generated.

 

Requirements for participants for 202:

– Laptop computer with a UNIX-based operating system. Tablet use is not possible.

Critical Halloween: REAL

Tuesday November 6, 2018

CSR_Mon_Mar_27

 

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

8 pm–12 am

 

Storefront for Art and Architecture

#CriticalHalloween     #CriticalMidterms     #ElectionDay    @storefrontnyc

 

It’s time to get REAL.

 

Halloween is one week before the 2018 U.S. midterm elections. Maybe our political context is so surreal that we’d like to believe that more of our Facebook and RSS feeds are just “fake news.” Maybe we’d rather retreat into alternative and virtual realities, the Really Really Free Market, or the comfortable spectacle of the brand (where they’re not shoes; they’re Nikes).

 

Maybe it’s easier to think of it all as a simulation, in which everything is imaginary and nothing hurts. Maybe, shocked back to reality by a bogus tweet, you’re wondering how it’s possible we got to this level of realpolitik…and what you can do about it.

 

In 2018, the real can’t be limited to concept; it is more tangible than ever. Real lives are at risk worldwide, from Brazil to Bhutan. As (and in solidarity with) survivors of assault, brutality, and displacement, we need authentic healing at individual, community, and legislative scales.

 

So this year, we’re changing it up. We’re asserting that, as a society, the most important piece of real estate we can claim is the voting booth. We’re calling out the irrationality of gerrymandering and restrictive voter ID laws. We’re addressing the civic architecture of our time, and, with your help, reshaping it to represent what’s really real this election cycle.

 

For Critical Halloween: REAL, Storefront partners with the Movement Voter Project, a non-profit that works to mobilize voter turnout around issue-based campaigns in forty states across the country.

 

Instead of buying a ticket, we’re asking you to become a member of Storefront at any level. For each membership pledge that is made toward Critical Halloween: REAL, an equal amount will be donated to Movement Voter Project in support of issues such as economic fairness, racial justice, gender equality, immigration, LGBTQ advocacy, healthcare access, and environmental sustainability through electoral change.

 

In other words, your membership to Storefront will have a REAL impact on a broad range of ideas and solutions that cross disciplinary and geographic boundaries, and will simultaneously empower voters nationwide.

 

On Tuesday, November 6th (ok, so it’s not really on Halloween), we invite you to bring your realest self to Storefront’s gallery space to hang out, watch the results, hear from each other, and have a drink. Come as you are, or as you want to be. This year, renewed aspirations are a critical part of our collective reality.

 

Let’s make this Halloween REALLY Critical. We hope you’ll join us.

 

ABOUT CRITICAL HALLOWEEN

 

Critical Halloween is a space of reflection and action based upon the belief that critical ideas have a place within even the most seemingly carefree manifestations of our culture: the Halloween costume party. Each year, Critical Halloween is a party, an intellectual debate, a costume competition, and space for the expression of radical thought.

 

This year, it’s also a way to create actual change in our political system.

 

COSTUME COMPETITION

 
With the aim to empower voters in every context, Storefront for Art and Architecture will present the Truly Democratic Costume and Campaign Slogan Competition. Instead of a jury, costumes and slogans will be judged by popular vote, with winners in the following categories: Realest Individual, Realest Duo/Group, and Realest Campaign Slogan. 
 
Attendees are invited to present their slogans on a soapbox at Storefront’s gallery space on November 6th.

From art movements to political forces, from economies to technologies to ontologies, from the unreal to the too real, we invite you to serve us your constituent body REALness in costume or speech.
 
BIBLIOGRAPHY
 
Critical Halloween: REAL is supported by a bibliography of seminal readings in architecture, design, philosophy, and political science, which serves as inspiration for costume concepts. The bibliography for REAL focuses in particular on political embodiment, philosophical notions of reality, architectural and spatial imaginations, simulationism and computation, realism and surrealism in art, violence and architecture, and more.
 
See here for the full bibliography.
 
To submit your own contributions to the bibliography, send an email with citations and your Instagram handle to membership@storefrontnews.org with the subject line “REAL REFERENCES.” Selections will be featured on Storefront’s social media.

Bookstore Network: Manuel Herz at McNally Jackson – Refugees, Migration, and Architecture [Event Postponed]

Friday August 10, 2018

 

Friday, August 10th, 2018

7 pm

McNally Jackson

52 Prince St, New York, NY

 

As part of the inaugural New York Architecture Book Fair, Storefront for Art and Architecture, McNally Jackson, and the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York present an evening with architect Manuel Herz on the integral response of architectural theory and practice to global migration.

 

As part of the book fair, Herz has curated a selection of titles on display at McNally Jackson throughout the summer. The selection aims to provide an understanding of how the context of refugees and their global movement lies at the very heart of the architectural discipline, reflecting upon issues of control, authority, use, and production of space. It is organized into seven categories: the figure of the refugee; spaces of camps and forced displacement; debates on control and power; humanitarian action and its contradictions; architecture as critical agency; architectural and urban applications; and narratives of displacement.

 

In “We Refugees,” Hannah Arendt states “Refugees driven from country to country represent the vanguard of their peoples.” Refugees are active agents, a new avant-garde that has the potential to transform society. Herz invites us to use this understanding to question the very foundations of our architecture.

 

About Manuel Herz

Manuel Herz is an architect whose research focuses on the relationship between the discipline of planning and (state) power. He has worked extensively on the architecture and urbanism of refugee camps, with a regional focus on Saharan and sub-Saharan Africa. His book From Camp to City—Refugee Camps of the Western Sahara documents how camps can be spaces of social emancipation and are used to prefigure the institutions of a nation by a refugee population living in exile. He was the curator and architect of the National Pavilion of the Western Sahara at the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2016.

 

His award-winning book African Modernism—Architecture of Independence presents the architecture of countries such as Ghana, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, and Zambia at the time of their independence in the 1960s and 1970s. The accompanying exhibition, shown at the Vitra Design Museum, is currently travelling to cities across Europe, the United States, and sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Winner of several prizes, including the German Facade Prize 2011, the Cologne Architecture Prize 2003, the German Architecture Prize for Concrete in 2004, and a nomination for the Mies van der Rohe Prize for European Architecture in 2011, Herz’s Basel based office is responsible for the construction of the Jewish Community Center of Mainz and several housing projects across Europe.

 

Manuel Herz studied at the Architectural Association in London. He taught at the Bartlett School of Architecture, London, the Berlage Institute, Rotterdam and Harvard Graduate School of Design, and was the head of teaching and research at ETH Studio Basel – Institute of the Contemporary City. Most recently, he has been appointed professor of architectural and urban design at the University of Basel.

 

About the New York Architecture Book Fair/Bookstore Network

Reflecting upon the monographs, history and theory books, edited volumes, essays, and compilations that comprise our libraries and bookstores, one wonders: which architecture books have we produced that should constitute the foundations of our contemporary context? With an archeological and projective twist, the first edition of the New York Architecture Book Fair seeks to celebrate and evaluate both the existing and the missing volumes of a history still in the writing.

 

Alongside an exhibition at its Soho gallery space, Storefront for Art and Architecture has partnered with independent bookstores throughout the city to present a series of pop-up architecture book collections. Each pop-up is curated by an emerging international architect. Together, they aim to reinforce the existing network of spaces in the city dedicated to the dissemination of culture and invite us all to expand our understanding of architecture books and publications that which we know.

 

 

To learn more about the New York Architecture Book Fair and participating bookstores, visit www.storefrontnews.org.

 

All Storefront events are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first come, first served basis, with priority seating available for members of Storefront. If you are a member, you can RSVP to reserve a spot.

Organized by Het Nieuwe Instituut
 
With Beatriz Colomina, Mark Wigley, and Liam Young
 
In Conversation with Lydia Kallipoliti
 
What do outer space capsules, submarines, and office buildings have in common? Each is conceived as a closed system, a self-sustaining physical environment demarcated from its surroundings by a boundary that impedes the transfer of matter or energy. Contemporary discussions about global warming, recycling, and sustainability have emerged as direct conceptual constructs related to the analysis of closed systems. 
 
From the space program to countercultural architectural groups experimenting with autonomous living, Lydia Kallipoliti’s forthcoming book, The Architecture of Closed Worlds -Or What is the Power of Shit? documents a deeply-rooted fantasy of architecture producing nature, and addresses its manifestation in the very fabric of reality.
 
Closed Worlds is released in collaboration with Lars Muller Publications and Storefront for Art and Architecture.
 
Copies of The Architecture of Closed Worlds – Or, What is the Power of Shit? will be available for pre-order from Lars Müller Publishers.
