FALL 2015 EXHIBITIONS
Opening reception: Friday, October 9, 7pm
October 9-November 29, 2015
Zvi Hecker’s Two Strips converts the SCI-Arc Gallery space from a passive container into an active participant in the exhibition itself. The site-specific installation consists of two strips tying together the gallery’s four walls, ceiling and floor. The intersecting strips serve as backdrop for presenting drawings and paintings by the architect, as well as materials selected by students as representative of Zvi Hecker’s architecture. The installation is both a collaborative project between the architect and students on the installation team, and a dialogue between two materials carried by the two strips.
