An exhibition of works attributed to the Czechoslovakian architect Petra Andrejova-Molnár, an overlooked figure active in the first half of the 20th century, as realized by artist Katarina Burin. In presenting Andrejova-Molnár's work and the scholarly apparatus around it, Burin simultaneously inserts her into and subtly destabilizes the established canon of architectural history. The project highlights the ways in which historical movements and utopian ideologies are complicated and contradictory formations in a constant state of flux, while also creating a space of play around the mythos of “the architect.” The exhibition is curated by Jacob Proctor, Curator, Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society.
Book launch and panel discussion: November 13, 4–6 pm
