Storefront for Art and Architecture presents innovative and critical ideas that contribute to the design of cities, landscapes and public life. Their joint cultural programme with Het Nieuwe Instituut kicks off with the exhibition Control Syntax Rio, which opens on March 27, at Storefront.
Het Nieuwe Instituut and Storefront for Art and Architecture launch City Forces, a year-long joint cultural crossover programme examining the relationships of power between those involved in the construction of the global city. The role of architects, politicians, policymakers, urbanists, developers and corporations in shaping the contemporary metropolis will be critically examined through a series of events, exhibitions and projects to be developed in cities around the world, including New York, Rotterdam and Rio de Janeiro. This partnership is supported by the Netherlands Consulate General in New York, and kicks off with the exhibition Control Syntax Rio, originally commissioned bij Het Nieuwe Instituut, where it was presented from June 2016 to January 2017.
