New Middles presents the city of Columbus, Indiana as an architectural archive ready for reflection. As co-curator of the 2020-21 Exhibit Columbus, Mimi Zeiger will discuss the modernist legacy of Columbus and its relationship to the Mississippi Watershed ecology. By exploring the history of Columbus and the design installations commissioned for the current exhibition, she’ll expand an understanding of the Midwestern city to address questions of colonization and civil rights, as well as posit meditations on cultural and materials histories latent in the celebrated buildings.
