4 Walls 5 Zones 10 Thresholds
The Storefront for Art and Architecture by Steven Holl and Vito Acconci exposed New York City to a new threshold. Are they doors? Are they windows? Private space not only captured the sidewalk, but it disrupted its pedestrians. In such spaces, new potential human contact and interaction can occur. This exhibition seeks to make one room into many, to intertwine spaces that unfold perspectives and reveal new discoveries. While the Storefront achieves multiplying readings through moving apertures, the thresholds in this exhibition are static planes. It achieves the same multiplicity through precise aperture dimension and control. Material differences as well as exhibition media allow for a constantly changing environment in all dimensions.
