Sylvia Lavin in conversation with Mark Kingwell

CCA elsewhere, in English, Daniels Faculty, University of Toronto, 7 November, 6:30pm

Guest curator Sylvia Lavin joins University of Toronto Philosophy professor Mark Kingwell for a discussion on themes raised in the exhibition Architecture Itself and Other Postmodernist Myths.

Architecture Itself and Other Postmodernist Myths proposes a counter-reading of postmodern procedures, replacing the myth of the autonomous architect with accounts of empirically describable architectural activity. Comprised of fragments—including drawings, models, and primary source documents gathered from building sites, libraries, and archives including the CCA’s own collection—the exhibition makes original contributions both to a counter-historiography of the postmodern and to contemporary curatorial methods.

RSVP is required for this event. Please register here.

This event is part of the Home and Away lecture series at the Daniels Faculty, University of Toronto.
