WorldWide Storefront is a mode of action; its aim is to unveil, produce and discuss experimental cultural works on a global scale from local points of view. By using the ability of contemporary means of communication to join space, undo place and avoid time, WorldWide Storefront provides leadership in imagining future modes of cultural production.

Storefront is seeking proposals from individuals or collectives across the globe with curatorial visions that articulate alternative positions within their particular context. Proposals should contain a two-month installation, series of exhibitions and/or events and identify a specific site where the project will be realized in relationship to the curatorial vision. Strong proposals will explore new spaces of cultural action that defy traditional notions of “gallery,” “pavilion,” or “cultural institution.” Proposals should also propose new and innovative ways to digitally engage audiences globally.

All proposals will be reviewed by an international jury of notables in the fields of art and architecture. Selected entries will be part of the WorldWide Storefront program and individuals will receive $1,000 in seed funding to start their project, as well as strategic outreach support and technical and logistical mentorship. From September 19 to November 21, 2014, all selected entries throughout the world will simultaneously open and have a two-month

program of exhibitions and events. All events will be recorded and broadcast through the WorldWide Storefront online platform and presented at the Storefront for Art and Architecture Gallery in New York, which will operate as the central situation room.

Storefront for Art and Architecture Competition

Storefront for Art and Architecture is excited to announce the launching of Competition of Competitions. an architectural competition that dislocates the tradition of competition into radical and renewed spheres and contexts. Throughout history, competitions have constructed a relationship of servitude between architects and the structures of economic, politic and cultural power. Competition of Competitions claims that the true desires of our present society are outside of the current taxonomy of competition briefs and that architects should be participants in the construction of the questions they are asked to answer.

The intention of Competition of Competitions is to provide and deliver new and relevant forms of engagement and content to the economic, politic and social systems that currently act as the voice of authority for the development of our cities. Competition of Competitions calls on students, architects, artists, economists, philosophers, writers, and citizens at large to create interdisciplinary teams to formulate the questions of our time and commission the visions for the future through the creation of a competition brief.

This is a great opportunity for all those involved in the field of architecture, including students, designers, writers, professors and curators, to get involved in an innovative competition that challenges conventions in architecture. In order to get a diverse and international response we would love to post a call for submissions on e-architect.

The deadline for registration is May 22, 2013 and the deadline for submissions is June 22, 2013.
