Event Description:
“Futurism’s Futures: Architecture”
The work of architects Antonio Sant’Elia and Mario Chiattone crystallized the dreams of a young generation of Italian architects who pinned their hopes on futurism, with its intolerance of historicism and belief in a dazzling utopian concept of a radically new city. The passage of time has not dimmed the beauty of their work, although it has allowed us to read them in a slightly different vein.
Esther da Costa Meyer teaches contemporary architecture in its interaction with globalization, neoliberalism, and environmental change, connections that challenge the anthropocentric, monographic models of traditional historiography. She also works on modernism and the
historic avant-gardes, and published a book on the Italian futurist Antonio Sant’Elia. Issues of gender are central to her research, and she has written on architects Lilly Reich, Charlotte Perriand, and Lina Bo Bardi. Her curatorial work includes an exhibition of the drawings of Frank Gehry, Frank Gehry: On Line (Princeton University Art Museum and Schoenberg, Kandinsky and the Blue Rider, co-curated with Fred Wasserman (The Jewish Museum, New York).
