Find and Tell: Kurt Forster on Aldo Rossi

Find and Tell, 18 February 2019 to 22 February 2019

The Find and Tell program promotes new readings that highlight the intellectual relevance of particular aspects of this collection today. It is conceived as a series of residencies in which invited experts are asked to put forward arguments about our holdings by making a significant selection and interpretation of material within an archive or the photography collection. The curated selection can be based on key areas or periods, key projects, or a topical interest the expert thinks should be revealed. Following each residency, the material selected by the experts is made available through the CCA website, accompanied by an essay that supports their specific curatorial approach.
