Mr Jonathan Solomon appointed co-curator at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale
Mr Jonathan Solomon, Acting Head of the Department of Architecture has been appointed co-curator of a major exhibition in the American Pavilion at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale, the official representation of the United State of America at the world’s most prestigious architecture exhibition, opening 29 August 2010.
The exhibition, Workshopping: An American Model of Architectural Practice, was selected by the US State Department in an open competition following the recommendation of the Federal Advisory Committee on International Exhibitions, convened by the National Endowment for the Arts. Workshopping is co-curated by Jonathan and Michael Rooks, and organized by the High Museum of Art (Atlanta) and 306090, Inc (New York).
Workshopping focuses on architects as initiators of trans-disciplinary collaborations in practice focusing on research and social engagement. With an emphasis on projects rather than individuals, and on processes and their impacts rather than on products, the show will highlight the work of American architects practicing at a range of scales.
