Wednesday, November 16


97 Kenmare St, New York, NY

Join us for a guided tour with artist Justin Beal as he walks us through our 40th-anniversary exhibition Public Space in a Private Time: Building Storefront for Art and Architecture.
This exhibition connects our focus on the built environment with New York City’s social and political challenges at the time of its founding in 1982. Through a close reading of early shows and projects, Public Space in a Private Time showcases the leading role Storefront has played in the defense of public space through artistic practice. 
Justin Beal is an artist and writer based in New York. His first book, Sandfuture, was published by the MIT Press in September 2021. Beal was a co-organizer of Public Space in a Private Time and will lead a small group of Storefront members in an intimate conversation around the show.
If you would like to join and are not yet a Storefront member, please sign up here, or contact us at
Note to members: This event has limited capacity. Please RSVP by Friday November 11.
