RR3 Public Exhibition & Field Talk
Black Contemporary will launch its 2017-18 academic exhibition season with a new project by internationally acclaimed architect/artist Catie Newell in collaboration with Peter P. Goché, assistant professor of architecture at Iowa State University. The RR3 exhibition and workshop will explore material and immaterial practices within the postindustrial context of Iowa’s agricultural scene. Installations will be developed in situ at Black’s Heritage Farm just outside Ames to enhance students’ understanding of the professional world of diverse practices and ethics. Funding for this project has been provided by the Vernon Stone Fund and the ISU Department of Architecture.
An open house will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, with a field discussion starting at 5:30 p.m. The discussion will be moderated by Firat Erdim and Andrea Wheeler, both ISU assistant professors of architecture.
