Images of the Future examined the reconfiguration of social boundaries within the globalization of labor, commerce and culture in 22 cities around the world. Although this exhibition was primarily comprised of images of buildings and spaces, it did not seek to catalogue innovations in architecture and city planning. Urbanism and architecture, observed in relation to political and economic forces, were seen as a means of investigating the cyclical process of destruction and redevelopment of urban landscapes. The Storefront installation was a condensed version of an exhibition previously curated by Kyong Park at the Kwangju International Art Biennale, South Korea.
