Museum Without Building is a collaborative and itinerant proposal for an exhibition based on Friedman’s work. Installed and activated at sites across New York City during the summer for 10 days, it was hosted as a project within the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space. Museum Without Building envisions the construction of an open format architectural structure that invites in artwork performances, dinners, workshops and research in response to Friedman’s text “Biosphere”which reflects on the need to build less¨ to improvise more with what we already have, and stands in opposition to the monolithic and egomaniacal architectural tendencies that we currently face in global urban centers.
