80WSE Presents "Four Houses, Some Buildings, and Other Spaces," Jan. 29-March 16


The 10 artists revisit the history of monuments, houses, and municipal buildings – places that were once hallmarks or centers of production and that have become more or less an unseen area in the contemporary landscape.

80WSE Presents "Four Houses, Some Buildings, and Other Spaces," Jan. 29-March 16

NYU Steinhardt’s 80WSE is proud to present “Four Houses, Some Buildings, and Other Spaces,” curated by Berta Sichel. The exhibition will open on January 29 and run until March 16. The exhibit is an exploration of the bond between architecture and history, delving into the complex relationship between ruins and memories and bringing deeper insight into the nature of the history of places and their social and cultural implications.

The 10 artists in the exhibition -- Europeans, Americans, and Latin Americans from different generations -- revisit the history of monuments, houses, and municipal buildings – places that were once hallmarks or centers of production and that have become more or less an unseen area in the contemporary landscape. For these artists, revisiting these ruined and forgotten buildings that once held a special significance opens up creative areas of memory, the imagination, and interpretation.
