This event has ended.

Archizines is an exhibition and a research project to celebrate and promote the resurgence of independent and alternative publishing practices. Making its American debut at Storefront with a bespoke design by \ / | < | \ | (Giancarlo Valle, Isaiah King, Ryan Neiheiser) the exhibition draws inspiration from the quintessential New York model of publication display - the newstand - and turns it on its side. Instead of a vertical, 2-dimensional billboard, the show will offer a horizontal, 3-dimensional field of objects: 80 architecture publications displayed on delicate metal rods, which sprout from the floor. The exhibition will evacuate all other content from the space, creating an information vacuum that focuses the visitor's attention on the objects themselves: 80 architecture magazines, fanzines and journals from over 20 countries that provide new platforms for commentary, criticism and research into the spaces we inhabit and the practice of architecture today.
