Not Halloween?

Not Halloween?

By: Janet H. Thomas, RID Here in Indianapolis we are for the first time in my life cancelling Halloween. This seems unreal and un-natural. Googling Halloween + Architecture to see how the design community acknowledges the holiday resulted in Critical Halloween 2013: Corporate AvantGarde . The third annual celebration, happening tonight in New York City, brings together Architects, Designers and Artists in a display of extreme out-of-the-box ideas on the history of design and the arts. To see images from Critical Halloween 2012: On Banality, on Metaphor scan through the photo gallery and be sure to watch the GIF series for more details and a sense of fun. The event is sponsored by Storefront for Art and Architecture, a not for profit located in the Chinatown/Little Italy/Soho district of New York City. The Storefront promotes innovation in art, architecture and design through exhibitions, events, guest speakers, film screenings, conferences and publications. They provide a platform for discussions and exchanges across borders, backgrounds and ideologies and look for innovative solutions to re-shape the urban built environment. Their gallery space is also unique in that it has twelve panels in the façade that pivot to allow a blurring between interior and exterior space, engaging the community beyond its’ doors. So while Indianapolis and surrounding areas ride out the storm, enjoy the show at Critical Halloween 2013. Check back on Friday to see who won best costume!
