Part I: Manifesto Series: In Our Time – The Sharing Movement
Wednesday June 8, 2016
Manifesto Series: In Our Time – The Sharing Movement, is a two-part series presented by Storefront for Art and Architecture and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. How will today’s sharing movement affect the way we work, move, build, and produce new ideas and knowledge?
Participants will discuss this contemporary and ubiquitous movement, one that is increasingly influencing the exchange of goods, data, images, services, and spaces of residence and work. The series brings together leading practitioners and scholars embedded within the movement to explore its spatial, social, public, and private consequences, many of which are changing the future of urban life.
Events will take place on June 8th at the Met Breuer, and on July 19th at Storefront for Art and Architecture. Storefront will also publish a related book as part of its Manifesto Series that draws upon the issues presented during the event.
Storefront’s programming is made possible through general support from Arup; DS+R; F.J. Sciame Construction Co., Inc.; Gaggenau; KPF; ODA; Roger Ferris + Partners; the Foundation for Contemporary Arts; The Greenwich Collection Ltd.; the Lily Auchincloss Foundation; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; The Peter T. Joseph Foundation; and by Storefront’s Board of Directors, members, and individual donors.
