Expanded Architecture 2014 callout

Expanded Architecture calls for site-specific artworks and academic papers for the 2014 exhibition and symposium: Temporal Formal at Seidler City.

The call is now out for architects, artists and academics to participate in this year’s Expanded Architecture exhibition and symposium Expanded Architecture: Temporal Formal at Seidler City. Curators are calling for site-specific installations for display in three Harry Seidler Sydney CBD buildings –Australia Square, Grosvenor Place, and 9 Castlereagh Street – for a one-night- only exhibtion (7 November).

They are also calling for theoretical and historical papers from academics and academics, architects, artists and curators for the symposium that follows on on 8 November at the Museum of Sydney. Both events form part of the 2014 Sydney Architecture Festival (website and program launching late August), and coincide with the Intercontinental Touring exhibition – Harry Seidler: Painting Toward Architecture at the Museum of Sydney.

Expanded Architecture is looking for papers that reflect on contemporary transient or temporal interpretations of Modernist, modular and formalist art/architecture from the Bauhaus to today. Abstracts will be double-blind peer-reviewed prior to the symposium, and authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a full 2,500-word paper for inclusion in the journal or monograph of the symposium.

The callout comes as Expanded Architecture’s co-curator Dr Claudia Perren begins her tenure as the first female director and CEO of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation.

More information and submission details at Expanded Architecture, or by email.
