Counter-tour: Vladimir Paperny's Cut

Event, in English, Main galleries, 12 December 2019, 6:30pm

Vladimir Paperny presents an alternative reading of the exhibition Building a new New World: Amerikanizm in Russian Architecture through a counter-tour.

Counter-tours propose critical, subversive, and alternative visions of an exhibition through encounters with the perspectives of special guests who are equipped with a projector to digitally add objects and a black cloth to remove existing objects from the galleries.

Paperny is an architectural historian and the co-editor of Architecture of Great Expositions 1937-1958: Messages of Peace and Images of War (2015) and Architecture in the Age of Stalin: Culture Two (2002), which has been published in Russian, English, Czech, and Italian. He is Adjunct Professor in Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Attendance to this event is free and open to all. Please RSVP.

The CCA offers free, fully-insured, pop-up play sessions for children three years old and up who can use the washroom independently, in collaboration with The Lion and The Mouse. If you would like to bring children, please indicate so when you RSVP.
