7. Sex and the So-Called City at Storefront for Art and Architecture
Sex and the City turns 20 this year, and the Storefront for Art and Architecture couldn’t resist an “alternate version” as they explore topics within the storyline such as real estate development, energy generation, reproduction, the hyper capitalization of society, and sex — as it all relates to “design, architecture, and the production of the city.”
The exhibit, Sex and the So-Called City, is presented in the form of a trans-media studio, with a 360-degree video capturing interior and exterior landscapes. The exhibit portrays snapshots of a new urban lifestyle, and includes a room filled with our ‘must-have’ objects for urbanites. It provokes us to contemplate the depths beneath the images that inundate our fictional – and real – New York City, and also the social, environmental and political consequences.
Sex and the So-Called City and related programming will be on view from February 2 to April 3, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1. Storefront for Art and Architecture is located at 97 Kenmare Street.
