New York City’s Storefront for Art and Architecture is known for continually reinventing its Soho space. This spring the gallery commissioned Snarkitecture, the artist Daniel Arsham and architect Alex Mustonen, to create DIG.
The Brooklyn-based Snarkitecture filled the space with blocks of Styrofoam and then set upon it with pickaxes, excavating a cave-like volume from the foam.
This summer, bright color lurks behind artist Vito Acconci and architect Steven Holls iconic façade, as Storefront presents work from Dutch artists Haas&Hahn in the exhibition "Painting Urbanism: Learning from Rio."
Haas&Hahn use rainbow swaths of color in their Favelapaintings, large mural like works that cover whole neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro's slums.
