What You’ll Do

The 1970s and ’80s were a zingy, energized time for New York City’s artistic subcultures in the neighborhoods of Soho and lower Manhattan. These decades saw outsider artists, emerging architects, and underground academics flourish and effervesce, muscling up against cultural institutions and subverting the status quo. Centered in the cultural capital of the world, this downtown cauldron of experimentation sent ripples across the global art community, helping to cement New York’s reputation as a refuge for creative underdogs and mischief-makers.

  • Where You’ll Meet
    You’ll meet at an organization founded during an influential era of alternative art: the Storefront for Art and Architecture, of which Carlos is the curator.

  • Where You’ll Go
    From there, you’ll visit other alternative galleries and destinations. Some were founded in the ’70s or ’80s, and others were founded later but continue the era’s legacy of subversive ingenuity.

  • Grab a Souvenir
    The tour doesn’t include any complimentary take-homes, but many of the tour spots have books and prints for sale.

Your Host

 Carlos Mínguez-Carrasco Carlos Mínguez-Carrasco

If you’ve visited the Storefront for Art and Architecture, you’ve seen Carlos Mínguez-Carrasco’s curation. If you’ve read Domus magazine, you’ve read his words on design. If you’ve visited Spain, you may have even experienced his architecture firsthand. Carlos, co-founder of the award-winning architects’ collective PKMN, keeps himself plenty busy with all of those endeavors, but still finds the time to share his passion for alternative art and architecture with the general public through his walking tours of New York City.
