  • Simulating Natures

    Philadelphia | Dates: 19 – 20 Mar, 2015

    This symposium explores how recent forms of media influence our understanding and formation of landscapes. It examines the substantial changes that have occurred within the digital realm over the last decade, focusing in particular on the development of computationally enabled imaging and modeling. How can we better engage the “invisibles”—biotic and abiotic interactions and flows—that exist outside of human creation but can only be understood through our systems of representation? This symposium considers emerging methods and vocabularies that engage this question; it looks to our allied fields—architecture, art, ecology, engineering, and philosophy—to seek points of convergence as well as to challenge our presumptions when designing with nature today.

  • Antoine Predock: Strata

    Albuquerque | Dates: 31 Jan – 13 Mar, 2015

    January 31 - March 13, 2015
    Opening Reception: January 31, 2015, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
    In partnership with On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design opening events

    Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Strata, an exhibition of collages, works on paper, and architectural models by internationally acclaimed New Mexico architect Antoine Predock. Strata samples the expansive scope of this architect’s approach to design with a focus on his process works for the Tacoma Art Museum and selected projects in the Albuquerque area. This exhibtion is in participation with On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design, an expansive collaboration celebrating the art of central New Mexico.

    Critical to the spirit of Predock’s work is the enigmatic quality of the desert. His large scale collages reflect diagrams of historical data often seen in exposed rock faces in New Mexican landscapes. These collages are a collection of visual information relating to each site. Clusters of images are stratified with quotes ranging from Jorge Luis Borges to Richard Serra and reveal the beginning phases of his conceptual process.

    Predock’s handmade clay models provide physical form to two dimensional ideas. Building on these forms, sophisticated three dimensional models are made. In spite of utilitarian function,these elegant models stand independently as abstract art objects. Process models of the Tacoma Art Museum in Washington, Robinson Valley House and United Blood Services in Albuquerque are exhibited alongside corresponding works on paper. These renderings illustrate structure, space and the impulse to reflect the spirit of environment. His intuition regarding the elemental power of place resonates throughout initial design phases and completed projects.

    Antoine Predock is the recipient of the 2006 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and the 1985 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome. He was named a 2015 Royal Institute of British Architects International Fellow, an Honorary Fellow from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and National Academician in 2014, and a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council in 2010. His most recent project, The Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, opened in September 2014 and has garnered much attention. Predock currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA and Albuquerque, NM.

    "Reconfiguring Knowledge: Making the Digital Humanities Visual"
    Organizer and Moderator: John Taormina, Duke University


    How do digital technologies allow us to look at knowledge production differently in the arts and humanities? New technologies allow us to interrogate and disseminate visual information from multiple vantage points. Digital Humanities in the cultural heritage environment includes such activities as curating online collections, mining large cultural data sets, data visualization and representational technologies, information retrieval, digital publishing, gaming, multimedia, peer-to-peer collaboration, and GIS and cultural mapping. In this new collaborative, interdisciplinary, digital environment, visual resources specialists and librarians work side-by-side with faculty and students to develop and support Digital Humanities projects for teaching and research. The use of digital technologies as a means to synthesize, present, and communicate large amounts of information challenges the instructor and researcher to incorporate different ways to investigate works of art or develop new visual support tools. This session seeks to highlight the issues surrounding the support, development, dissemination, and preservation of Digital Humanities projects in the arts and humanities. Papers should address the transformational changes brought about by introducing digital technologies into the arts and humanities disciplines.

    Paper proposals should be submitted via the SECAC conference website ( The paper proposal deadline is Monday, April 20, 2015.

  • NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers

    New York, NY | Dates: 07 – 31 Jul, 2015
    Objects matter. Material culture scholars use artifactual evidence such as consumer goods, architecture, clothing, landscape, decorative arts, and many other types of material.
    The Bard Graduate Center will host a four-week NEH Summer Institute on American Material Culture. The institute will focus on the material culture of the nineteenth century and use New York as its case study because of its role as a national center for fashioning cultural
    commodities and promoting consumer tastes. We will study significant texts in the scholarship of material culture together as well as in tandem with visiting some of the wonderful collections in and around New York City for our hands-on work with artifacts. The city will be our laboratory to explore some of the important issues of broad impact that go well beyond New York.
    We welcome applications from college teachers and other scholars with some experience doing object-based work, as well as those who have never taught or studied material culture. Application materials and other information about content, qualifications, stipends, housing,
    etc. is available at 
    The application deadline is March 2, 2015.

  • Sculpting the Architectural Mind - Neuroscience and the Education of an Architect

    Brooklyn | Dates: 06 – 07 Mar, 2015

    In recent years, architects have been mining new research in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, object-oriented philosophy, and experimental biology for design concepts and for accounts of the new conditions of materiality. Architects borrow from these discourses to formulate and justify a wide range of design processes, especially digitally-driven ones. But we have failed to discuss how neuro-scientific knowledge can impact architectural pedagogy. A generation of architectural students has been trained in digital design tools, and younger students now generate nearly all of their design through digital media. What forms of design cognition has this change in representational systems yielded? Research from the sciences of the mind might help to unpack the implications of this shift.

    This conference considers the roles that applied neuroscience has played and might play in the education of architects. What cognitive skills should be developed through an architectural education, and how has the long history of exchanges between biological and neuroscientific knowledge generated current models for architectural design? Which insights from neuroscientifc research should architectural educators be aware of as they formulate pedagogic platforms? Given what we are learning about the role of the body and the hand in learning from recent mind-brain research, how can we best integrate training in digital tools with other tools that engage the body in the process of design? Finally, what impact might a new approach to the cognitive development of architectural students have on our built environment?

    The symposium is structured around invited presentations and panel discussions with neuroscientists, architectural theorists, historians, philosophers, and artists. Hosted by Pratt Institute’s School of Architecture in collaboration with the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture. It is free and open to the public.

    The conference is co-organized by Dan Bucsescu (Pratt), Michael A.Arbib (ANFA Liaison) and Ralph S. Steenblik. For information contact: Steenblik.

  • The Rijksmuseum Research Fellowship Programme

    Amsterdam | Dates: 15 Mar, 2015

    Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
    Application deadline: Mar 15, 2015

    The Rijksmuseum operates a research fellowship programme for outstanding candidates working on the art and history of the Low Countries whose principal concern is object-based research.

    The Rijksmuseum houses the world’s largest collection of Dutch artistic and historical treasures, and the most complete library on Dutch art.

    The museum re-opened its doors to the public in April 2013 following a ten-year renovation that completely transformed the institution. For the first time in its history, the paintings, sculpture, decorative arts and historical artefacts are being shown together in a chronological display. This innovative curatorial approach presents the public with an overview of the art and history of the Netherlands from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century.


    The aim of the Rijksmuseum Research Fellowship Programme is to train a new generation of museum professionals: inquisitive object-based specialists who will further develop understanding of Netherlandish art and history for the future. The focus of research should relate to the Rijksmuseum’s collection, and may encompass any of its varied holdings, including Netherlandish paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, prints, drawings, photography and historical artefacts. The purpose of the programme is to enable doctoral candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum and to encourage the understanding of Netherlandish art and history by offering students and scholars access to the museum’s collections, library, conservation laboratories and curatorial expertise. Partnership and collaboration is at the heart of these fellowships, which provide support for the museum and its research priorities, as well as its academic and non-academic partners.

  • Mobile M+: Moving Images

    Hong Kong | Dates: 27 Feb – 26 Apr, 2015

    M+, West Kowloon Cultural District, will present its inaugural moving image project from 27 February to 26 April 2015. Titled ‘Mobile M+: Moving Images’, the project consists of a series of thematic screenings and an exhibition featuring a selection of works from the museum’s growing moving image collection, while exploring the highly relevant ideas of contemporary migration, mobility and home.

    Curated by Yung Ma, Associate Curator, Moving Image at M+, Mobile M+: Moving Images is the eighth in a series of pre-opening public programmes organised by M+, and a multi-site project to be held over a period of two months.

    Inspired by the many connotations of the word ‘moving’ and the rise of diasporic cinema, Mobile M+: Moving Images engages Hong Kong’s acclaimed ‘migratory cinema’ from the 80s and the 90s, and in particular Clara Law’s 1996 film Floating Life, which will be screened on Friday, 27 February 2015, as a starting point to consider how conditions and realities of contemporary migration and displacement are imagined, expressed and represented through mediated images.

    The screening programme will take place at Yau Ma Tei’s Broadway Cinematheque, the leading art house cinema in Hong Kong. It will present a total of over 30 Hong Kong and international films, ranging from narrative features to shorts, documentaries, artist films/videos and television programmes, by leading filmmakers and artists, including Allen FONG, Ann HUI, JIA Zhangke, Isaac JULIEN, Stanley KWAN, Clara LAW, Ken LOACH, NING Ying, Ellen PAU, TSAI Ming Liang, Wim WENDERS, Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL, Haegue YANG, and others. The programme will be screened over four separate weekends under four different thematic groupings – Hong Kong, Hope, Dreams and Home.

    “With Hong Kong’s ‘migratory cinema’ as one of the key inspirations, this project celebrates the city’s cinematic legacy. I also believe the project’s thematic focus of contemporary migration is rather poignant and relevant both locally and internationally, especially given the globalisation of the last decades,” said curator Yung MA. “In order to offer the public a fresh and wider perspective on moving images, the exhibition will include works in the filmic mode as well as other forms and mediums by Hong Kong and international artists and filmmakers. It will employ a pluralistic approach to visualise the transitional and transformative experiences of migration, reflecting the realities of today’s mobile societies.”

    The exhibition will be held at two different locations, Cattle Depot Artist Village, a well-known contemporary art compound in To Kwa Wan, and Midtown POP, a newly established space in Causeway Bay. The exhibition will showcase works by over 25 artists and filmmakers, some of which will be selected from the growing M+ Collection, including major works by Anson MAK, CHEN Chieh Jen, Paul CHAN, Estudio Teddy Cruz, Dominique GONZALEZ-FOERSTER, Isaac JULIEN, KAN Xuan, Charles LIM, Koki TANAKA, Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL, Young Hae Chang Heavy Industry, ZHANG Peili, ZHU Jia and others. It will also unveil a new commission by the young and exciting Hong Kong animator WONG Ping.

    Dr Lars NITTVE, Executive Director of M+, said, “As the launch of M+‘s first moving image programme, we aim to establish a strong identity for M+‘s distinctive curatorial approach in presenting and collecting moving image works, in which boundaries between the different materials will be deliberately dissolved to form a holistic view of the field. A number of works or works by the same artists/ filmmakers will be shown in both settings, further signifying our strategy of highlighting an inter-disciplinary approach to the formation of our programme and collection, which is central to the practice of M+ as a museum for visual culture.”

    In addition, Mobile M+: Moving Images will be accompanied by a series of learning activities, including talks with filmmakers and artists as well as workshops and special guided tours, inviting the public to better understand the content and M+’s vision in developing the moving image field.

    The exhibition of Mobile M+: Moving Images will be free for public access, while the screening programme requires paid-tickets. Programme details will be announced soon and be posted on the website: .

  • Treatise: Why Write Alone?

    Chicago | Dates: 23 Jan – 28 Mar, 2015

    The Graham Foundation is pleased to present Treatise: Why Write Alone?—an exhibition and publication project that brings together fourteen young design offices to consider the architectural treatise as a site for theoretical inquiry, experimentation, and debate. Organized by Chicago and Los Angeles-based designer Jimenez Lai, the project grows out of a recent Graham Foundation grant to Lai, whose interest in discursive practices and non-conformist approaches to architecture led him to ask his peers working in the realm of conceptual architecture: Why write? And, why write alone? In response to these questions, Treatise presents an exhibition of works by this core group of designers as well as an individual treatise from each office. Together, the exhibition and publications provide a platform to investigate the collective and individual stakes that emerge from this temporary alliance of designers as they explore architecture’s representational limits and possibilities.

    Opening January 23, 2015, the exhibition features over 200 works, from drawings and models to multi-media installations, by design offices that utilize diverse—and often unexpected—strategies, forms, and materials.

  • Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955-1980

    New York | Dates: 29 Mar – 19 Jul, 2015

    n 1955 The Museum of Modern Art staged Latin American Architecture since 1945, a landmark survey of modern architecture in Latin America. On the 60th anniversary of that important show, the Museum returns to the region to offer a complex overview of the positions, debates, and architectural creativity from Mexico and Cuba to the Southern Cone between 1955 and the early 1980s.

    This period of self-questioning, exploration, and complex political shifts also saw the emergence of the notion of Latin America as a landscape of development, one in which all aspects of cultural life were colored in one way or another by this new attitude to what emerged as the “Third World.” The 1955 exhibition featured the result of a single photographic campaign, but Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980 brings together a wealth of original materials that have never before been brought together and, for the most part, are rarely exhibited even in their home countries.

    The exhibition features architectural drawings, architectural models, vintage photographs, and film clips alongside newly commissioned models and photographs. While the exhibition focuses on the period of 1955 to 1980 in most of the countries of Latin America, it is introduced by an ample prelude on the preceding three decades of architectural developments in the region, presentations of the development of several key university campuses in cities like Mexico City and Caracas, and a look at the development of the new Brazilian capital at Brasilia. Architects met these challenges with formal, urbanistic, and programmatic innovation, much of it relevant still to the challenges of our own period, in which Latin America is again providing exciting and challenging architecture and urban responses to the ongoing issues of modernization and development, though in vastly different economic and political contexts than those considered in this major historical reevaluation.

    The exhibition is accompanied by two major publications: a catalogue and an anthology of primary texts translated from Spanish and Portuguese.

    Organized by Barry Bergdoll, Curator, and Patricio del Real, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art; Jorge Francisco Liernur, Universidad Torcuato di Tella, Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Carlos Eduardo Comas, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil; with the assistance of an advisory committee from across Latin America.

    A major contribution for the exhibition is provided by Emilio Ambasz.

    Major support is provided by The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art.

    Additional funding is provided by The Reed Foundation, the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID) with the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York, the Consulate General of the Argentine Republic in New York, and the MoMA Annual Exhibition Fund.
