  • The Millstream building was one of seventeen venues used for the 40th EVA International Biennial in 2023, curated by Sebastian Chichocki and titled The Gleaners Society.
  • Presented at this venue was documentation of FOOD (1971), a restaurant founded by artist Gordon Matta-Clark, the dancer Caroline Goodden and other members of what would later become the collaborative group Anarchitecture. As a social space, meeting ground, and ongoing art project for the emergent downtown artists’ community, FOOD was a landmark that still resonates in the history and mythology of SoHo, New York
