Wesleyan's Davison Art Center will present a retrospective of artwork by architects whose projects "have been critical to the development of American architecture during the last 50 years," according to Martha Anez, assistant professor of art at Wesleyan University. It will be entitled "Abstraction and Representation: Contemporary Architectural Drawings" will run from November 9th - December 21.
Exhibitors will include: Tai Soo Kim, Asymptote Architecture, Michael Graves, Hariri & Hariri, Steven Holl, Ralph Johnson, Morphosis, Cesar Pelli, Antoine Predock, Stuart Silk, Robert Stern, Tod Williams Billie Tsien and Robert Venturi.
These projects embody Mr. Kim's philosophy that architecture should be simultaneously bold and inspirational in its simplicity, and appropriate to natural and cultural conditions.
On Thursday, November 29, 12:15 p.m. Prof. Anez will present an Art a la Mode gallery talk about the exhibition, sponsored by the Friends of the Davison Art Center.
