The Post-Olympic City
Some former Olympic sites are retrofitted and used in ways that belie their grand beginnings; these sites are often turned into prisons, malls, and gyms. Other Olympic sites are unused for decades, and so they become tragic time capsules.
After the events are over and the medals have been handed out, what’s next? What happens to a city after the Olympics are gone?
On the occasion of the 2012 London Olympics, Storefront for Art and Architecture presents The Post-Olympic City, an exhibition with archival images, research materials, video, and Olympic ephemera, exploring the life of the post-event city. As part of the exhibition, Storefront will provide a live broadcast of the 2012 Olympic Games in the gallery.
The show opens July 7, 2012 at Storefront for Art and Architecture.
