Oct 18, 2011 (All day)
Robertson Hall
Bowl 016


Open to the Public

"Architecture as Memorial" will be the topic of a panel discussion at the Woodrow Wilson School on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. in Bowl 016, Robertson Hall. The discussion is being held in conjunction with an exhibit of large scale drawings by Eve Ingalls titled "Sited Memory/Underground Shadow." Ingalls' work will be on display in the School's Bernstein Gallery from August 29 through October 21, 2011, and is part of a collaborative investigation into the arts and cultural memory, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of 9/11, organized by the Princeton University Museum of Art. A public reception with the artist and panelists will follow the talk in the Bernstein Gallery.

Panelists include Lucia Allais, an assistant professor of architecture at Princeton University and Joel Smith ’00, the Peter C. Bunnell Curator of Photography at the Princeton University Art Museum. Stanley Katz, a professor of public and international affairs and director of the Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies at the Woodrow Wilson School, will moderate the panel.

Ingalls received her BFA and MFA from the Yale University School of Art. She was one of two artists representing the U.S. at the Holland Paper Biennial 2006, held at the Coda Museum and the Museum Rijswijk in the Netherlands. Her sculpture was exhibited at the Art Forum in Kyoto, Japan in 2007, and at the Schokland Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Netherlands, in 2003.

Lucia Allais has worked in design firms in Europe and the U.S., and has won a number of awards and fellowships for her research. Her writings cover a range of subjects and periods, including baroque theories of architectural knowledge in France, the influence of Henri Bergson on 20th Century urban planning, and the institutional origins of American architectural theory.

Stanley Katz is a leading expert on American legal and constitutional history, and on philanthropy and non-profit institutions. He is president emeritus of the American Council of Learned Societies, the leading organization in humanistic scholarship and education in the United States. He was recently awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama.

Joel Smith’s publications include Steinberg at The New Yorker (2005), and a catalogue for the traveling retrospective exhibition Saul Steinberg: Illuminations (2006). He has organized exhibitions on language in twentieth-century art, wit and humor in photography, and the transmission of visual motifs through art, as well as monographic exhibitions of photographers.
