This week’s guest speaker, Tina di Carlo, is Director of Exhibitions at the Princeton University School of Architecture.

A former curator of architecture and design from the Museum of Modern Art, she holds degrees in art history and architecture from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London and the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

She recently completed her PhD on the 1988 Deconstructivist Architecture exhibition at MoMA.

Exhibiting Architecture

Over the last twenty years the exhibition of architecture has become the subject of scholarly research as well as generating a substantial discourse of its own.

This talk will discuss three recent exhibitions of architecture to consider its display and representation, thinking through drawing, photography and constructions outside of building, to propose a genre of exhibitions that is propositional, investigative and discursive.

The talk will draw on works in the Drawing Matter Collection as well as recent and forthcoming exhibitions at Princeton.

Everyone is welcome; please contact Dr Katerina Antonopoulou, Simpson Postdoctoral Fellow in Architecture, if you have any questions or do not have a University staff/student card (for access).

Take me to all events in the ESALA Research Seminar series 2016 - 2017.
