Claudia Comte: Zigzags and Diagonals

Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveand, 11400 Euclid Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44106 United States

Claudia Comte (1983, Grancy, CHE) is a Swiss artist whose sculptures, large wall paintings, and immersive installations emerge from the artist’s interest in the shapes and forms of Modernism. For each new wall painting Comte creates a series of compositional parameters through which she builds striking optical designs that entirely reshape the architecture and space. Zigzags and Diagonals is the inaugural wall painting in a new and ongoing series of wall-based installations by contemporary artists in MOCA’s unique and visionary architectural spaces.

Hans Poelzig. Projects for Berlin

Museum for Architectural Drawing, Christinenstraße 18a
Berlin, 10119 Germany

Alongside Walter Gropius, Bruno Taut, Mies van der Rohe and Peter Behrens, Hans Poelzig (1869–1936) was undoubtedly one of the most important German architects of the first half of the 20th century. His life and work are inextricably connected to Berlin where he was born, studied, lived with his wife, Marlene Moeschke, in Westend, taught at the Charlottenburg Technical High School, ran his architectural practice and designed masterly buildings such as the Großes Schauspielhaus in Mitte, the Rundfunkhaus in Charlottenburg and the Babylon cinema.…

The Sea Ranch

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 151 3rd Street
San Francisco, CA 94103 United States

Distinctive architecture, uninhibited ocean views, bold supergraphics, shared open space, and meditative tranquility—these were the beginnings of the Sea Ranch, a beacon of Modernism on the Northern California coast. Designed by a small group of Bay Area architects and designers in the early 1960s, the development was envisioned as a progressive, inclusive community, guided by the idealistic principles of good design, economy of space, and harmony with the natural environment. This exhibition brings together original sketches and drawings from the…

Jan Tschichold and the New Typography: Graphic Design Between the World Wars

Bard Graduate Center, 38 West 86th Street
New York, 10024 United States

Tracing the revolution in graphic design in the 1920s, this exhibition displays materials assembled by typographer and designer Jan Tschichold (1902–1974) in Weimar Germany. Published in Berlin in 1928, Tschichold’s book Die Neue Typographie was one of the key texts of modern design, partly due to its grasp of Constructivist ideas and new print technology, but equally, because it was a manual for practicing designers. In the years leading up to its publication, Tschichold struck up a correspondence with many European artist-designers,…

Offsetted

Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, 1172 Amsterdam Ave.
New York, NY 10027 United States

Offsetted is an exhibition conceived and designed by London-based spatial practitioners Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe). An immersive installation comprising matter from New York City trees — including bark, branches, trunks, leaves, and clippings — will assemble a constellation of narratives about the political and economic interests that have both protected and displaced the city’s trees under the pressures of urbanization. A London plane tree at 728 Nostrand Avenue in Brooklyn reduces $13.55 of carbon dioxide annually. In Manhattan, a…

Rouse Visiting Artist Lecture: David Hartt, “Urban Futures of the Recent Past”

Gund Hall Piper Auditorium, 48 Qunicy Street
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States

This talk borrows the sub-title from Reyner Banham’s seminal book Megastructure, published in 1976.  As a reference, Banham’s text critiques the failure of translating the energy and optimism of 60’s era civic projects into lasting institutions; thus creating fertile conditions for the seeds of our own post-ideological crisis to germinate in the capitalist restructuration of the mid 70’s.  Hartt will focus on the relationship between the speculative and documentary aspects of his practice and, in particular, works that continue this narrative forward into our own age of fiction. David Hartt (b. 1967, Montréal) lives…
