20 November – 14 December 2008

Bringing together artistic and architectural projects by distinguished international practitioners, Curating Architecture focuses on the relationship between architecture as an increasingly influential (and dominantly transdisciplinary) aesthetic practice and the complex claims on public and institutional space made by artists, curators and architects as they seek to articulate new, often political and certainly critical, productions of space.
