The Speechbuster, commissioned by Storefront with the support of the Rauschenberg Foundation and designed collaboratively by architect Jimenez Lai and artist Grayson Cox, embarks on a journey through a series of stimulating spaces in New York City. For each residency, the performative, multi-function, multi-layer, Storefront gallery-sized table, inserts public debate within private spaces bringing the Storefront programming Series outside of the gallery space.
