The New Monumentality


Gerard Byrne, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Dorit Margreiter's films explore the nature of a previous generation's modernity through environments dating from the 1950's and 1960's: Leeds University, Niemeyer's Ibirapuera canopy, Hollywood sets in Los Angeles. The architecture is brought to life in different ways by narrative sound-tracks which both underscore and undermine the architecture on view.

This exhibition catalogue features an introduction to the exhibition and the practice of each artist, as well as an overview by Penelope Curtis (Curator of the Henry Moore Institute) of the featured architectural projects, and a critical appraisal of Leeds University by Lance Wright (first published in Architectural Review).
