Symposium: "Whither Installation"

January 21, 2012 at 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

“Whither Installation” symposium is intended both as a survey and interrogation of the variety of means and scopes (historical, contemporary, theoretical, discursive, and institutional) by which “installation” as a genre of work has been formulated over the last 15 years. The intuition being tested is that “installations” have emerged, or perhaps re-­emerged, as the conceptual framework by which the discipline of architecture imagines itself.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together a group of architectural makers, teachers and thinkers whose work, in varieties of ways and means, speaks to the relation of architectural production to the current idea of the “installation” today.
