Canal Street Research Association

Canal Street Research Association is the fictional office entity of Shanzhai Lyric. Delving into the cultural and material ecologies of the street and its long history as a site that probes the limits of ownership and authorship, the association repurposes underused real estate as spaces for gathering ephemeral histories, mapping local lore, and tracing the flows and fissures of capital. They are currently located in a basement under Canal Street. Research notes accumulate at @canal_street_research.
