StoreFrontLab is a small space for big ideas, a vessel for dialogue and public engagement. Exploring the “storefront” as a place of community, creativity and local industry, we support participatory projects that bridge disciplines and prompt discussion. StoreFrontLab hosts experiments lasting from one day to one month, and take the form of salons, interactive and performative installations, lectures, film screenings, workshops, pop-ups, poetry, and music. Each season, we identify an important and many-sided concept, unpacking a constellation of thoughts, problems and images communicated through dynamic public programming within our project space.
A project by Space Open, led by Robert Glass & Darryl Jones, featuring four nights of immersive experiences and euphoric reflection.

With the events of 2016 still in sharp relief, we unravel the more unsettling elements of the immediate past. What made up the madness? Through a multi-media, interactive experience, we reexamine recent history to see what we might have missed. <more>
As we settle into the future, we remember the darkness that haunted us about what was to come. But now it has come, and so we must begin, again, to live as we desire to live. We must continue to imagine what is possible. Part tea house, part bath house, part body-painting immersion, Embrace connects our mind and body through healing group activities. <more>
Release to renew. With recent news of indecent male to female contact filling our news media—from elected officials to university professors and students flooding mainstream media—the perception of touch and intimacy is replaced with force and objectivity. We challenge the audience to reconnect with the body as a positive experience through touch, sight, and sound. <more>
Over three nights this spring, CLIMAX sought to break down social barriers and blur boundaries between artist and audience through immersive, participatory experiences exploring critical themes of the current political moment. This final event highlights selected artifacts, video and sound from the project series. <more>
