Jeffrey Kipnis: *@$#*!#!!
SCI-Arc Distinguished Chair of History and Theory
Professor, Knowlton School of Architecture, Ohio State University, Columbus
Jeffrey Kipnis is professor of architectural design and theory at the Knowlton School of Architecture of The Ohio State University. His writings on art and architecture have appeared in such publications as Log, hunch, Harvard Design Magazine, Quaderns, 2G, El Croquis, Art Forum, Assemblage, and his books include Choral Works: The Eisenman-Derrida Collaboration, Perfect Acts of Architecture, and The Glass House. As architecture/design curator for the Wexner Center for the Arts, he organized the design survey, “Mood River” with co-curator Annetta Massie and “Suite Fantastique,” a compilation of four exhibitions: Perfect Acts of Architecture; The Furniture of Scott Burton; The Predator, a collaboration between Greg Lynn and Fabian Marcaccio; and Imaginary Forces – Motion Graphics. His film, A Constructive Madness, produced in collaboration with Tom Ball and Brian Neff, looks at the architect’s work on the unbuilt but seminal Peter Lewis house project. His most recent study of Stephen Holl’s Bloch Addition to the Nelson Atkins Museum appears in his new book, Stone and Feather.
The lecture will be about *happy*, *zany* and other important political trends.
