Exhibit Opening: Clip, Stamp, Fold: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines, 196x-197x

September 6, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Taubman College will host an exhibit opening reception on September 6, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Liberty Annex.

This exhibit was researched and organized by a team of Ph.D. candidates in the School of Architecture at Princeton University led by Professor Beatriz Colomina. The team included: Craig Buckley, Anthony Fontenot, Urtzi Grau, Lisa Hsieh, Alicia Imperiale, Lydia Kallipoliti, Olympia Kazi, Daniel Lopez-Perez, and Irene Sunwoo.

This exhibition tracks the critical function of independent architectural publications that were the engine of an intensely creative period of experimental architectural practice in the 1960s and 1970s. Known as “little magazines,” the periodicals that proliferated during this period appeared in response to the political, social and artistic changes of the time. The show includes manifestoes, pamphlets, building instruction manuals, and a survey of magazine covers as well as professional magazines, complemented by interviews with editors and designers of these publications.

Generous support for this exhibition was given by The Guido A. Binda Lecture and Exhibition Fund
