Claudia Comte: Zigzags and Diagonals

Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveand, 11400 Euclid Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44106 United States

Claudia Comte (1983, Grancy, CHE) is a Swiss artist whose sculptures, large wall paintings, and immersive installations emerge from the artist’s interest in the shapes and forms of Modernism. For each new wall painting Comte creates a series of compositional parameters through which she builds striking optical designs that entirely reshape the architecture and space. Zigzags and Diagonals is the inaugural wall painting in a new and ongoing series of wall-based installations by contemporary artists in MOCA’s unique and visionary architectural spaces.

Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980

MoMA, 11 West 53rd Street
New York , NY 10019 United States

Situated between the capitalist West and the socialist East, Yugoslavia’s architects responded to contradictory demands and influences, developing a postwar architecture both in line with and distinct from the design approaches seen elsewhere in Europe and beyond. The architecture that emerged—from International Style skyscrapers to Brutalist “social condensers”—is a manifestation of the radical diversity, hybridity, and idealism that characterized the Yugoslav state itself. Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980 introduces the exceptional work of socialist Yugoslavia’s leading architects to an…

Model Projections

Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, 1172 Amsterdam Ave.
New York, NY 10027 United States

Model Projections investigates the complex pathways between architecture and its representations through an examination of the practice of model making. While models have long occupied a central role in the design and building processes, during the postwar period the production and function of models expanded as architecture firms increasingly commissioned elaborate three-dimensional representations that were extraordinarily precise in detail—from simulated materials to landscaping, from designer furniture to electrification. Precursors to today’s hyperrealist renderings and virtual environments, scale models helped architects advance…

Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip-Hop Architecture

Hip-hop is a cultural movement established by the Black and Latino youth of New York’s South Bronx neighborhood in the early 1970s. Over the last five decades, hip-hop’s primary means of expression—deejaying, emceeing, b-boying, and graffiti—have become globally recognized creative practices in their own right, and each has significantly impacted the urban built environment. Hip-Hop Architecture produces spaces, buildings, and environments that embody the creative energy evident in these means of hip-hop expression. Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip-Hop…

Common Threads: Weaving Stories Across Time

Isabella Gardner Museum, 25 Evans Way
Boston, Massachusetts 02115 United States

Textiles have been a vehicle for exploring political and personal narratives over the centuries, and in the hands of a select group of boundary-pushing artists today, they invite one to consider anew the stories we tell ourselves, collectively and individually. Common Threads: Weaving Stories Across Time features the work of contemporary artists, many of whom have been Artists-in-Residence at the Gardner. These artists are redefining textile art through mediums including music, video, and participatory art. Taking its cue from Isabella Stewart Gardner’s own magnificent…

Hans Poelzig. Projects for Berlin

Museum for Architectural Drawing, Christinenstraße 18a
Berlin, 10119 Germany

Alongside Walter Gropius, Bruno Taut, Mies van der Rohe and Peter Behrens, Hans Poelzig (1869–1936) was undoubtedly one of the most important German architects of the first half of the 20th century. His life and work are inextricably connected to Berlin where he was born, studied, lived with his wife, Marlene Moeschke, in Westend, taught at the Charlottenburg Technical High School, ran his architectural practice and designed masterly buildings such as the Großes Schauspielhaus in Mitte, the Rundfunkhaus in Charlottenburg and the Babylon cinema.…

WASTE: LAGOS LANDFILL STADIUM

Rapid urban growth and growing inequality has created a global crisis in housing that increasingly segregates the rich from the poor. Though not fully understood, there is a clear and parallel relationship between the size of a city and its level of socio-economic disparity: the larger the city, the less equal it tends to be. Physical and social segregation, which both reflects and perpetuates socio-economic disparity within a city, is a growing concern in cities worldwide - including Mumbai. The…
