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.

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.
