Architecture Itself and Other Postmodern Myths

Canadian Centre for Architecture
Exhibition Dates: 
Nov. 07, 2018 to Apr. 07, 2019

Architecture Itself and Other Postmodernist Myths proposes a counter-reading of postmodern procedures, replacing the myth of the autonomous architect with accounts of empirically describable architectural activity. The exhibition makes original contributions both to a counter-historiography of the postmodern and to contemporary curatorial methods.

A broad selection of material evidence—including drawings, models, and primary source documents gathered from building sites, libraries, and archives including the CCA collection—supports accounts of architects’ and architecture’s entanglements with bureaucracy, the art market, and academic and private institutions, as postmodernization challenges the discipline to redefine its modes of practice and reconsider the very idea of architecture itself.
