We are experiencing the emergence of a culture that is marked by a return to, redefinition, and expansion of the notion of the commons. The increasing complexity and interconnectedness of globalization is reorienting us away from trends that have emphasized individuation and singular development, and toward new forms of collectivity. 
 
Over the last decade, emerging technologies and economies have affected aspects of our everyday life, from the way we work and travel, to how we think about shelter and social engagement.
 

How will the sharing movement of today affect the way we inhabit and build the cities of tomorrow?

 
Manhattan, one of the most dense and iconic places in the world, has been a laboratory for many visions of urbanism. Sharing Models: Manhattanisms invited 30 international architects to produce models of their own visions for the city’s future. 
 
The models, each a section of Manhattan, established analytical, conceptual, and physical frameworks for inhabiting and constructing urban space and the public sphere. Together, they presented a composite figure; a territory that is simultaneously fictional and real, and one that opened a window to new perceptions of the city’s shared assets.

Share Me: Facade Installations

As part of Sharing Models: Manhattanisms, five artists were invited to produce stencils that asked us to reflect upon the sharing movement. The facade of Storefront was transformed into a canvas that presented one artist’s work each week throughout the duration of the show. Visitors to Storefront’s gallery space received a stencil of the work being shown. Participating artists included Curtis Kulig, John Giorno, Lawrence Weiner, Sebastian Errazuriz, and Shantell Martin.
