This year, Storefront will begin an exciting new chapter in its history that will carry the gallery beyond the confines of New York – a series of new Storefronts will pop up for a brief time in cities around the world to host events and exhibitions, and then disappear.
Pop-Ups will avoid the conventional gallery format by temporarily taking over unoccupied spaces in unexpected neighborhoods, to exhibit and discuss pressing topics in art and architecture.
The very first Pop-Up Storefront, opening 11 April in Los Angeles (map), will exhibit Frédéric Chaubin’s CCCP (Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed) in a partially disused print works on Sunset Boulevard. CCCP
opened to critical acclaim in April 2007 in Storefront New York, and will be on view in the Pop-up Storefront LA for five weeks.
In April, a Pop-up Storefront will make a brief appearance in Milan (map) during the 2008 edition of the Salone del Mobile (Milan Furniture Fair, 16-21 April). In June, Storefront will be visiting London (map) for five weeks on occasion of the London Festival of Architecture (20 June – 20 July).
