Wangechi Mutu: A Promise to Communicate

The Institute of Contemporary Art, 25 Harbor Shore Drive
Boston, MA 02210 United States

Artist Wangechi Mutu (b. 1972, Nairobi, Kenya) is known for her self-proclaimed “maximalist aesthetic,” hybrid compositions, and wall-based works that add texture and dimension to architectural spaces.

Titled A Promise to Communicate, the work will also create a space…

Ambiguous Territory: Architecture, Landscape, and the Postnatural

Pratt Manhattan Gallery, 144 West 14th St
New York, NY 10011 United States

What new worlds, and what new concepts of nature and culture can art…

A House for Paul Virilio

Paul Virilio died, on September 10th, this year. This French theorist obsessed by war, asked: what does architecture mean in the age of total war ? - a war which, even when it does not manifest itself explicitly, is fatally in the making, with ever increasing speed. Our age is indeed governed by speed. We cannot conceive "progress" without speed. But this glorified speed could also mean a quicker progression towards the end. If indeed, as he said, the invention…
