“The solution to social and political miseries is political action. Most people, including artists, don't want to act and that suits the various governments. Artists can and should object as artists but the real action is as a citizen among citizens."

–Donald Judd, 1973

Storefront for Art and Architecture is pleased to offer Storefront Members a private guided tour at 101 Spring Street, the former living and working space of artist Donald Judd.


Free for Storefront Members. RSVP is required on a first come, first serve basis.

OfficeUS Mission Statement: Peggy Guggenheim Cocktail Reception

View Photos

On June 5th, a cocktail party with more than 1,000 guests took place at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection where everyone toasted the history of U.S. firms and the future that lies ahead with a specialty drink "the Guggenheim Effect" designed by OfficeUS Partners Cooking Sections. 


Who Owns The Guggenheim Effect? is a cocktail containing different spices, tomato, vodka and a piece of fresh Italian pasta cut with the shape of the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, specially developed for the opening party of OfficeUS at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice. Recently, the Guggenheim Foundation threatened to sue an Italian chef in Bilbao for creating pasta in the shape of the elevation of their museum. The concept of our piece consisted of re-appropriating the appropriation of the image of a building. We brought it into the museum itself to open up the discussion about the ownership of cultural/architectural icons and their socioeconomic implications. In the glass, there was also a little flag reading the title of the intervention.  MakerBot was an incredible tool to produce the pasta cutters with a sharp edge and would like to keep on working with it in the future.

Speechbuster Residency

Wednesday May 14, 2014 – Wednesday May 14, 2014

Inserting public discourse into private space

Speechbuster Residency
SpeechBuster, 2013. Pier 53

Storefront for Art and Architecture presents the Speechbuster Residency, a program which inserts public debate within private spaces and activates public discourse through a series of conversations, screenings and events negotiating between the performativity of the Speechbuster, contemporary issues in art and architecture, and the space it occupies. 


The Speechbuster makes its first stop at the Exhibition Space at RVA located at Rafael Viñoly’s New York downtown office. 


Its second stop will be in an OfficeUS Outpost Office located at 97 Kenmare as part of the OfficeUS project, the 2014 United States Pavilion at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition - la Biennale de Venezia in Venice, Italy.


About the Speechbuster Residency Program
The Speechbuster, commissioned by Storefront with the support of the Rauschenberg Foundation and designed collaboratively by architect Jimenez Lai and artist Grayson Cox, embarks on a journey through a series of stimulating spaces in New York City. For each residency, the performative, multi-function, multi-layer, Storefront gallery-sized table, inserts public debate within private spaces bringing the Storefront programming Series outside of the galley space. 


  • 1ST STOP /  Exhibition Space at  Rafael Viñoly Architects  / MAY 14th, 2014  


Located within the headquarters of Rafael Viñoly Architects at 50 Vandam Street in West SoHo, the exhibition space is a 2,450 square foot multi-function workspace with 25-foot ceilings. It regularly hosts meetings, lectures, workshops, events and temporary exhibitions.  About Rafael Viñoly Architects:  Founded in 1983 and based in New York City, Rafael Viñoly Architects is an internationally renowned firm with offices in London and Abu Dhabi. The firm has completed an unusually large number of diverse projects on five continents that range in scale from laboratory casework detailing to master planning. Over the past quarter century, the practice’s key trademark is the ability to reinvent institutional typologies and integrate the public realm into civic buildings.


  • 2ND STOP / 97 Kenmare OfficeUS Outpost / JUNE 17th, 2014

Storefront for Art and Architecture’s 2014 Spring Benefit: On the Fringe (of Fundamentals) was a toast to 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 presented 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: Meredith Monk and Olafur Eliasson.

To round off a 5-day residency for "Younger than Storefront" at Storefront for Art and Architecture and as part of the exhibition BEING, we invite you to take part in a final event hosted by the artists. A gathering centered around a rock and a text that records the journey across an ocean, through a city, and into an institution. Investigating movement and presence in the form of a spatial installation, a sound intervention, and a word performance.


Please join us for drinks and conversation.


Free and open to the public. 


studio nāv : "anachronistic drift"
(1)5 days
the Atlantic Ocean, traversed in a cargo vessel. in-between: a deviant time-space.
the city of New York, an encounter. wandering.
a quarried rock, taken from its origin to another.
an error. a deviance. a weight.
a vessel of deep time. a resistance.
an acceptance. a bearing of indifference. a new instrument.

A residency.
To spend time in a place. To reside. To be, somewhere.
An intention. An invitation. A promise. A responsibility.

On the conditions of being and the subject of the institution.
A five part tale about the traversal of territorialized space.
Where does this journey get us? Will we ever get there? What is to be done along the way?


This event is generously supported by the Royal Norwegian Consulate General.
