INTERPRETATIONS: Promiscuous Encounters

March 23, 2012
12:00AM - 8:30PM
Fayerweather 200, GSAPP

Promiscuous Encounters has two main ambitions: first, to examine the fascinating blurriness and productive interplay between the critical, curatorial and conceptual capacities of architecture, including how and where they intersect and overlap and, second, to expand the definitions of what these terms mean in relation to theory and practice by reexamining the sites of criticality and their modes of operation. When and where, we might ask, is an architectural practice Critical, Curatorial or Conceptual today? Can we, or would we want to, separate these kinds of practices or are we subject to an inevitable and productive promiscuity?

INTERPRETATIONS: Exhibition Practice

April 22, 2011
11:00AM - 6:00PM
Wood Auditorium, Avery Hall
Critically unpacking the formative processes of recent architectural exhibitions
 
What is the purpose of contemporary architectural exhibitions? How are they produced?

It is widely recognized that exhibitions have been a fundamental platfrom 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 exhibitions practice.

The symposium is structed 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.
