COLLECTING ARCHITECTURE TERRITORIES

DESTE FOUNDATION, NEA IONIA, ATHENS 20.6-31.10/2012

The exhibition Collecting Architecture Territories presents the development of the art-architecture, cultural-academic collaboration between the DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation (GSAPP). One of the most significant developments reshaping the domain of art and architectural practice over the last three decades is the veritable explosion of institutions and foundations that have emerged out of private collections. The sheer breadth and diversity of such institutions—ranging from experimental new museums to renovated industrial, commercial, or military buildings, and from long term installations to temporary exhibitions—demands analysis. Collecting Architecture Territories proposes that the historical institution of the museum, forged by the culture of the Enlightenment, is no longer sufficient to describe the expanded territory in which the practices of artists, collectors, curators, and architects now operate. Consequently, it asks if our understanding of collecting itself has been altered by recent architectural articulations beyond the space of the museum and new art institutions.
