Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
How does the architecture of the museum drive new relationships between artists, architects, curators, and their diverse audiences? Join artist Rachel Rose and award-winning architects Preston Scott Cohen, Gerald M. McCue Professor in Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and Florian Idenburg, cofounder of architecture firm SO – IL, for a panel discussion about contemporary art and architecture.
Moderated by Troy Conrad Therrien, Curator, Architecture and Digital Initiatives, the panelists will discuss the ways in which these critical dialogues are transforming museums and cultivating new projects. The conversation will highlight the pioneering projects of Cohen and Idenburg—most notably the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California, Davis—and Rose’s video installations within museum contexts.
A reception and book signing will follow the discussion. Copies of SO – IL’s first-ever publication Solid Objectives: Order, Edge, Aura and Preston Scott Cohen’s Lightfall: Genealogy of a Museum: Herta and Paul Amir Building, Tel Aviv Museum of Art will be available for sale.
Tickets: $12, $10 members, $5 students
Presented with Tel Aviv Museum of Art American Friends, Harvard Graduate School of Design and Harvard Alumni Architecture and Urban Society
