Storefront for Art and Architecture / Making Grounds

A site-specific public installation exploring the restaurant storefront typology as a tool to create intentional shared spaces; a proposal for ‘On the Ground’ a yearlong research project and exhibition series about New York City’s ground floor.

Proposal Excerpt ↴
'Making Grounds' is an exploration of the restaurant storefront typology as a cultural and psychogeographic landmark, specifically how objects —when placed in certain amalgamations and socio-cultural contexts— can transform into power tools for gathering.

On the Ground

From the Storefront Website ↴
'On the Ground' is a yearlong research project and exhibition series about New York City’s ground floor. Through a close look at the urban typology of the storefront, this expansive endeavor presents newly commissioned artistic explorations and dialogues about the critical role storefronts play in shaping public life. The project will unfold through three exhibitions, a radio show, an open call, a public program, and a thematic reader.

Informed by Storefront for Art and Architecture’s peculiar relationship with the sidewalk, On the Ground reflects on the critical role storefronts play in shaping public life. While empty storefronts have been ubiquitous in the city long before the pandemic, the impact of the last two years has seen an even greater proliferation of ground floor vacancies which has altered the urban fabric, and in doing so, the experience of moving through the city.

Full case study forthcoming.
