Opening Reception: InConstruction: Peter Eisenman
Opening reception for InConstruction: Peter Eisenman, the latest in the InConstruction exhibition series in the Kantor Lobby.
Also on view in the Newmark Gallery, Single-Handedly: Contemporary Architects Draw by Hand, curated by Warren James and Nalina Moses. Copies of Single-Handedly (2019, Princeton Architectural Press) will be available for purchase and signing by Nalina Moses.
InConstruction: Peter Eisenman presents a model of the Pinerba Condominium, a housing project for Piazza Erba in Milano (2019). The Pinerba Condominium utilizes abstraction and a Milanese typology through different layered materials, constraints and internal functional requirements, and contrasts the notion that its form should come from the orthogonal lines of the surrounding streets, resulting in a curved structure with open spaces for its inhabitants.
InConstruction is an intimate exhibition series at Art Omi that focuses on architecture and design projects, by contemporary architects.
Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in the Sculpture & Architecture Park and Newmark Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.
