MANUAL OF SECTIONMARC TSURUMAKI, LTL Architects
MARC TSURUMAKI, LTL Architects
 ~ Elmaleh Gallery

This exhibit exploits the differences between an exhibition and a book. Rather than one copy, 64 copies of the book are put on display. Each is open to one of the cross-sections in the book, and is held and illuminated by its own stand. The assembly of stands is arranged from left to right unfolding the sequence of the book into the space of the gallery, with each book clipped to the next for stability. Designed and fabricated by LTL, the displays are comprised of 704 parts and 896 pieces of hardware, which reflect the interest in detail and assembly within the drawings themselves.

ARQUITECTURA AGRONOMIA

Parque de los Primeros Pasos. Caracas. Venezuela
ARQUITECTURA AGRONOMIA
Teresa Galí-Izard and Jordi Nebot

~ East Wing Gallery

This exhibit illustrates the construction process of the Parque de los Primeros Pasos in Caracas, Venezuela. This park is the first built piece of a larger project, which includes the construction of a football stadium and a bus station. AQAG has collaborated with RSHP and ARUP, and the local team of the FPHC. The goal of this exhibit is to highlight the voice of landscape architects in the conversation of the construction of the built environment, and the importance of identifying the opportunities to build critical innovative projects for the city.

Andrew Marshall (MAH ‘18)
~ Corner Gallery

The Center for Cultural Landscapes is proud to sponsor the exhibit A Body Incorporate: Patterns and Peoples of the Virginian Municipality, created by Masters of Architectural History student Andrew Marshall. Borrowing the title from Chester W. Bain’s 1967 study of the municipal structure of Virginia, this exhibition documents Andrew’s travels to small towns across the state to investigate the physical typology of its urban form. Through the view of architectural form as an extension of society’s collective consciousness, the project seeks to read urban and building scale patterns to foster the critical practices to interpret and improve the civic realm. Formal analysis, as well as the stories of individual people and encounters, begins to unveil how these structures serve as a backdrop for our lives as citizens and our work as designers.

Same Sky: Jessica Mallios and Adam SchreiberSame Sky Jessica Mallios and Adam Schreiber
~Ruffin Gallery | 5-7pm

Same Sky is an exhibition of recent work by Jessica Mallios and Adam Schreiber. Working between photography and video, the artists reveal a shared interest in time as a force at work on architecture. Works included mark the sun’s exposure to a library and the slow, fixed loop of an observation tower. For both artists, specificity of site gives rise to reimagined possibilities of photographic exposure, durational experience of place, and the gap between site and its representation.

Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection: Opening
10am – 4pm 

Janet Fieldhouse: Body Ornaments

This exhibition of works by Indigenous Australian artist Janet Fieldhouse sits at the intersection between contemporary ceramic practice and the art traditions of the Torres Strait Islands, off the northern coast of Australia. Her “woven” ceramic practice is particularly inspired by historical and contemporary practices of Torres Strait women, such as the creation of mats, baskets, pendants and armbands.  Other works created by Fieldhouse explore her desire to preserve designs from the female ritual of scarification, where skin is cut or burned to produce permanent markings in scar tissue rather than ink. While this is no longer practiced today, the designs retain their cultural significance, and it is these two-dimensional patterns that Fieldhouse transforms into her raku clay sculptures.

Emerging Typologies in the City-region: 2016 China Summer Program Postcard

Emerging Typologies in the City-region: 2016 China Summer Program 
 ~Campbell Hall, East Wing Gallery

UVA Architecture China program in summer 2016 identifies, documents, and analyses emerging architectural and urban typologies in two of China’s most dynamic city-regions, the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta. With a combined population of 260 million people, both delta areas are made of clusters of cities and towns that provide vast design, production, and consumption capacities. Perhaps the most fascinating features to architecture and urbanism are new realities in city-making that demand knowledge and insights. We are witnessing the making of an urban age in which not only half of the world’s population lives in cities, but also the very idea of the city is changing. Architecture and urbanism in China present rare opportunities to observe mutations of the city in response to contemporary world political and economic structures, as they take place.

Everyone needs a break, and struggling artist Dana Fielding finds herself in a mental hospital after suffering a breakdown following scathing reviews of her work. Realizing her prescribed ten-day-stay is not nearly long enough, she tries to convince hospital authorities that she thinks she is former baseball great Darryl Strawberry. In the process she makes discoveries that change her life and her art.

Tickets are $14.00 for adults, $12.00 for seniors, U.Va. faculty/staff and U.Va. Alumni Association members, and $8.00 for children and students. Full-time U.Va. students may receive one free ticket if reserved at least 24 hours in advance of their desired show date.

Theo Mullen | With Small Changes There is a slab of concrete that was once a factory floor. What remains are various bits of material used by local skaters as obstacles. What strikes me is the directness and simplicity in creating what seemed to me as formal sculptures full of movement and transition. Through a photography and sculpture installation I challenged myself to use the material within the reclaimed skate park to create a series of arrangements employing a similar aesthetic. The sculptures draw from the raw and archetypal material used in creating DIY skate parks.
