Rice Design Alliance 2014 Lecture Series


Recommended Posts

Our fall lecture series starts tomorrow night. There'll be a mix of architects, historians, artists, photographers; their creative work is speculative and tries to imagine what our cities and buildings will look like in the next 10, 15, 20 years. 

This lecture series will have a different format from others. On Wednesday, October 1, Jean-Louis Cohen, an architectural historian and critic, will introduce the series and explore its themes.
The next two weeks will feature a curated discussion between two artists. On Wednesday, October 8, Belgian photographer Filip Dujardin will be in dialogue with Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett (best known for his work with director Spike Jonze on such films as Her and Being John Malkovich).
Finally, on Wednesday, October 15, British architect and curator Liam Young and Polish visual artist Agnieszka Kurant will continue the discussion.
All lectures are held at 7 p.m. in the Brown Auditorium at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, at 1001 Bissonnet Street. A wine reception, sponsored by local architecture, design, and engineering firms, will precede each lecture at 6 p.m. 
You can purchase tickets for the series here. Or you can purchase single tickets the night of. They're $15 for the general public and $7 for RDA/MFAH members, students with ID, and seniors.

@Subdude: Yep. It'll be curated, right there on the spot, shaped by the wit and cunning of our moderator. :-)


Basically, we wanted to put the artists/architects in a conversation on stage and see what would happen. It also changes the feel: audience members won't have to sit there and look at slides.
