Audio Recording of Spatial City: An Architecture of Idealism

On March 30, 2011, The Drawing Center and Cultural Services of the French Embassy and Platform presented a panel discussion on artist/architect Yona Friedman’s legacy. The event celebrated the recent exhibition which used Friedman’s theoretical project, Spatial City as a point of a departure from which to bring together for the first time a selection of international works from the FRAC, Regional Collections of Contemporary Art in France. Spatial City: An Architecture of Idealism was on view in Milwaukee, Chicago and Detroit in 2009-2010. Panelists included Nicholas Frank, Curator at Invova, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Sylvie Froux, Laurence Gateau, and Emmanuel Latreille, directors of Fonds Regionaux d’Art Contemporain (FRAC), and Kristina Solomoukha, artist. Luis Croquer, Director of MOCAD Detroit was also present. Moderated by Brett Littman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center.
