Abrons’ Inside Things Selected to Exhibit at SCI-Arc
Inside Things, an exhibition of work by Ellie Abrons, Assistant Professor of Architecture, will be shown in the SCI-Arc Library Gallery from March 18 - May 1, 2016. Abrons was selected as part of a partnership between the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) to showcase the work of emerging architects. The work of SCI-Arc design faculty Mira Henry will be exhibited at the UMMA this summer.
Through objects and drawings, Abrons' exhibition explores architectural interiority borne from agglomeration and exaggeration. Parts seem too big for their wholes, forms don’t quite fit together, and proto-figures combine to produce objects whose outsides don’t quite reveal their insides. The parts allude to something familiar. Figures imbued with vitality that walk the line between living things and not living things. Here, the ambiguity of formal resemblance mixes with obscure, heterogeneous materiality to produce architectural things that invite misreading and are open to interpretation but never land on intended meaning.
SCI-Arc is a world-renowned center of innovation and one of the nation’s few independent architecture schools. Operating in the Arts District of Los Angeles, SCI-Arc offers undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs.
