Storefront for Art and Architecture’s 2016 Spring Benefit

Storefront for Art and Architecture’s 2016 Spring Benefit

The TWA Flight Center, designed by Eero Saarinen, opened to the public in 1962 and has been out of use since 2001. On the evening of Sunday, May 8th, Storefront for Art and Architecture’s 2016 Spring Benefit, BEYOND BORDERS, will be the last public event to be held at the iconic terminal before its redevelopment.

BEYOND BORDERS reflects upon a growing collective consciousness about spaces of difference and the desire to transcend them.

In the space of the border, architecture intersects with dilemmas of flow, control, identity, and belonging. The scale of such dilemmas ranges from geopolitical to liminal. Borders, as lines of division between political, social, ecological, and moral issues, are subtle and ubiquitous protagonists in the poetics of daily life. They absorb the desires that exist on the margins of the legal and the possible.

We are thrilled to honor architect Teddy Cruz and architectural photographer and agency Ezra Stoller / ESTO – Erica Stoller at the event. The evening will include a silent auction with international artworks; special performances; and a series of installations that transport guests to new frontiers of art, architecture, and design.
