What We Say About The Project:

Self Storage NYC is a site-specific exhibition-event taking place in select self storage facilities in Long Island City and Flux Factory’s gallery. The project is a major Flux Factory show occurring throughout October, organized by a team of international curators.

Taking full advantage of the “1 month 1 dollar” offers provided by self storage facilities around Flux Factory, Self Storage NYC provides 10 artist or activist groups and projects with the opportunity to freely curate a storage unit for a month.

At the same time, Flux Factory’s gallery will function as co-working & exhibition space for these artists and activists. A program of talks and activities (TBA) will take place for both the participants and the public, addressing topics related to the social responsibility of city development, the sustainability of non-traditional spaces and the phenomenon of storage.
