SALON: Curating the City, part 1 with PPS Director James Hall & Vincent Buonanno

Friday, Feb 1, 2013 5:00p to 7:00p
Providence Athenaeum Providence, RI

Too often today architecture is narrowly defined as real estate. In conjunction with RISD's The Festive City exhibit, Hall and Buonanno discuss a different role for architecture, that of temporal marker and narrative device. The prints Buonanno loaned to the show depict the 18th century Chinea Festivals in Rome, in which enormous architectural constructions were featured as the festivals’ centerpieces and then ceremoniously destroyed by fire at their conclusion.
