The Other of the Other
Modern Architecture in Latin America
November 18 – December 2
Duderstadt Center Gallery
This exhibition was designed to visualize the complexity of writing a survey that covers a myriad countries; historical, social, and political conditions; and scales of productions from small houses to urban plans.
The timeline and the projections allow the viewer/reader to simultaneously see the development of multiple and parallel historical strands and, at times, their interconnections and overlaps. It is also intended to show the existing pluralities within the history and that, ultimately, the history being presented is provisional and interminable. Design and curatorial selection by Luis E. Carranza and Fernando Lara, associate professor of architecture, The University of Texas at Austin.
The exhibition is accompanied by a talk by Professor Fernando Lara, at the Helmut Stern Auditorium in UMMA, on November 18, 6:00-7:30 PM. For more information please visit UMMA.
Sponsored by the Brazil Initiative at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS), and co-sponsored by the Duderstadt Center Gallery and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
Gallery Hours: M-F, noon-6:00 pm and Sunday, noon-5:00 pm.
