On the occasion of the Frieze Art Fair Downtown Night, Storefront will present Capital C, on Sunday, May 6, 2012 at 7PM, a Cabaret Series event where a group of artists and architects will address the relationship between the production of capital and cultural objects through humor seduction and play.
