Join exhibition curator Andrew Blauvelt for an overview of the exhibition’s themes and ideas. He will be joined by professors Greg Castillo (UC Berkeley), moderator Ross Elfline (Carleton College), Simon Sadler (UC Davis), and Felicity Scott (Columbia University)—noted scholars on the countercultural production of the period and contributors to the exhibition catalogue—for presentations, a panel discussion, and an audience Q&A.
Ross Elfline is an assistant professor of art history at Carleton College, where he offers courses in the history and theory of art and architecture since 1945. His current research focuses on Radical Architecture in Italy, Austria, Britain, and America in the 1960s and ’70s, with particular emphasis on the Italian avant-garde collective Superstudio, the subject of his current book manuscript. He has published widely on Superstudio and recently authored an article focusing on the “Conceptual Architecture” issue of Design Quarterly, published by the Walker Art Center in 1970.
