GSAPP Columbia University New York City
The core of the GSAPP Exhibitions program is the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery. The gallery is simultaneously a testing ground for exploring new approaches to architectural exhibitions, and a reflexive space for considering and analyzing architecture as it has been formed through exhibition. Different strains of exhibition experiments appear in the gallery, sometimes through the coordination and exposure of archival, historical or thematic architectural research projects, or through installation and curatorial strategies themselves. One of the more porous spaces within the school, an organism within an ecology of disciplinary exchanges, the gallery is a site for staging exhibitions that leave the school to travel to other institutions and to museums elsewhere, and is also an aperture through which projects with contemporary artists, filmmakers, scholars and curators infiltrate the school as provocation to its conventions, practices and pedagogies.
