Craig Buckley: Deformations
Mar 12, 2020

Please note that this upcoming talk by Craig Buckley has been postponed and will no longer take place on March 12, 2020. Thank you for your interest.

Presented in relationship to the exhibition Poured Architecture: Sergio Prego on Miguel Fisac, Craig Buckley discusses the ways in which Sergio Prego's recent work offers an opportunity to revisit the complex historical lineage of pneumatics in architecture and to consider the changing aesthetic and political stakes of plasticity within our contemporary "art-architecture complex.”

Craig Buckley is an Assistant Professor of modern and contemporary architecture in Department of the History of Art at Yale University. He is the author, most recently, of Graphic Assembly: Montage, Media, and Experimental Architecture in the 1960s (University of Minnesota Press, 2019).
