Interpretations: Exhibition Practice (Columbia Symposium, 4/22)

M.S. in Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices in Architecture at GSAPP + Domus present:


INTERPRETATIONS: EXHIBITION PRACTICE
A daylong symposium at Columbia University that critically unpacks
the formative processes of recent architectural exhibitions.

Date: Friday 22 April, 2011, 11:00–18:00
Location: Wood Auditorium, Columbia University; New York, NY.
Free entrance

What is the purpose of architectural exhibitions? How are they produced?
It is widely recognized that exhibitions have been a fundamental platform for
the formulation, production, and dissemination of ideas within architecture;
and yet, the processes through which they are created often remain opaque.

Interpretations attempts to unpack specific examples of contemporary
architectural exhibitions, taking certain “reference exhibitions” as common
points of departure for a larger discussion about the complexities of
exhibition practice.

The symposium is structured around three exhibition categories, each
compromising one session: contextual, survey, and themed—using this
format as a tool to maintain a critically flexible, while still defined,
space for discussion.
