INTERPRETATIONS: EXHIBITION PRACTICEA daylong symposium at Columbia University that critically unpacksthe formative processes of recent architectural exhibitions. Date: Friday 22 April, 2011, 11:00–18:00Location: 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.
