New film featuring Poured Architecture: Sergio Prego on Miguel Fisac

Conceived as an experiential art installation, Poured Architecture presents an immersive view of artist Sergio Prego’s perspective on the late Spanish architect Miguel Fisac through a series of drawings and sculptures by Prego, informed by Fisac’s innovative material experimentation and construction. Uniting these practices for the first time, the exhibition was the result of Prego's 2020 Graham Foundation Fellowship. Experience Poured Architecture in a short film by Spirit of Space.
