Art and Architecture: A Place Between
Timely and wide-ranging, "Art and Architecture" explores the proliferation of recent work by both artists and architects that seeks to blur traditional boundaries between the fields. Looking back to precedents in land and community art by artists from Robert Smithson and Walter de Maria to Hans Haacke and Joseph Beuys, Rendell discusses pioneering international work by artists including Liam Gillick, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Paul Pfeiffer and Rachel Whiteread and architects as varied as Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, Atelier van Liesholt and Shigeru Ban. She visits site-specific artworks, interventions into existing buildings, galleries operating outside their physical limits and the best of collaborations between the fields. More than a survey, 'Art and Architecture' draws on the work of thinkers from Walter Benjamin to Michel de Certeau to probe the meanings of place, space and site.
