In this Cooper Union Intra-Disciplinary Seminar lecture, visual artist, theorist, and educator Michelle Dizon will explore the loss, erasure, and silence that constitute archives through her most recent installation, “The Archive's Fold”. Dizon will contextualize The Archive's Fold in the visual genealogies of imperialism, discuss the spatiotemporal shifts when the most vulnerable within globalization are centered, and offer archival futurism as a realm of intimacy between the dead, the living, and the still to be born.
The publication, titled Designing New York: Quality Affordable Housing, will launch at a public program at the Center for Architecture that will include city official speakers, architect presentations, and a discussion panel. This publication will include New York City-based case studies and a brief history of the development of affordable housing throughout the city.
This exhibition explores the elusive, complex phenomenon of color perception and how it has captivated artists, designers, scientists and philosophers. Featuring over 190 objects spanning from antiquity to the present, it reveals how designers apply the theories of the world’s greatest color thinkers to bring order and excitement to the visual world.
Architecture in La Habana, Cuba is usually understood from the point of view of colonialism, whether Spanish or North-American, Cold War politics, or tourist economies and ideologies. But it could also be seen as generating wholly new points of view – more fluid and less familiar. Liquid La Habana at the Princeton SoA presents 5 different case studies from the late 19th century until today and challenges their common interpretations.
