Storefront Newsprints

This is a collection that definitely should have been on my holiday list.

Storefront Newsprints 1982-2009

"Shortly after Storefront for Art and Architecture was born in 1982, founding director Kyong Park began circulating what he described as a "newsletter" among the gallery's friends and followers.


Over time, the archive of Storefront's Newsprints grew to become the most complete historical documentation of the gallery's programs since its earliest days. Storefront Newsprints 1982-2009 is comprised of reproductions of over 154 newsletters, many of which contain otherwise unpublished texts by artists, architects and theorists such as Vito Acconci, Lebbeus Woods, Michael Sorkin, Beatriz Colomina, Michael Webb and Eyal Weizman, among others."
If you're in New York City next week, there is a launch event at Storefront on Wednesday, December 9, 6pm.
Guests: Vito Acconci, Amale Andraos and Dan Wood, Mary Ellen Carroll, Liz Diller + Ricardo Scofidio, Didier Fiuza Faustino, Dan Graham, Sarah Herda, Bjarke Ingels, Laura Kurgan, Michael Manfredi, Damon Rich, Michael Sorkin, Joshua Stein, Michael Webb and many others
