Self Storage NYC (#selfstoragenyc) is a site-specific exhibition-event taking place in select self storage facilities in Long Island City and Flux Factory’s gallery. Taking full advantage of the “1 month 1 dollar” offers provided by self storage facilities around Flux Factory, Self Storage NYC provides 9 currently displaced artist or activist-run spaces and projects with the opportunity to freely curate a storage unit for a month. The project is a major Flux Factory show occurring throughout October, organized by a team of international curators. Learn more here.
