Inserting public discourse into private space
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.
