The open-call exhibition “13.3% is an exasperated reply to those who say, ‘there are no women making architecture’” developed out of conversations on the role of women within the profession -- specifically the often-quoted statistic that just over thirteen percent of practicing architects in the US are female (according to the AIA). 13.3%... adopts the conceptual structure of curator Lucy Lippard’s landmark 1973 exhibition of conceptual art, c. 7,500, in which each work fit in a standard manila envelope. Lippard’s exhibition contested the belief that there were no women making conceptual art at the time — and she did so by mailing evidence of this work directly to the gallery for display. Nearly forty years after Lippard exhibited her "exasperated reply," 13.3%... provides a space and form in which to consider the issue of gender in contemporary architecture culture. The exhibition will open in December 2010 at The Project Space at WUHo (Woodbury University Hollywood Exhibitions), prominently located on Hollywood Boulevard's Walk-of-Fame in Los Angeles, California.
13.3%... solicits contributions of any perspective and in any format surrounding the theme of gender within the practice of architecture. There is only one rule: submitted materials must arrive to the gallery in a standard manila envelope (9 by 12-inch) postmarked by November 20, 2010.
