SCI-Arc Announces Spring 2020 Public Lectures and Exhibitions

SCI-Arc is pleased to continue its commitment to maintaining a robust platform for interdisciplinary thinkers with its spring 2020 series of public events. The SCI-Arc public lectures coming this spring introduce speakers from a broad cross-section of cultural practices, including artist Lauren Halsey, architect and educator Eva Franch i Gilabert, scholar and critic Charles L. Davis II, and writer and architect Andrés Jaque.

The public lecture series is complemented by several exhibitions, including Anna Neimark’s Rude forms among us, and Post Persona by David Eskenazi held in conjunction with the A Queer Query symposium, as well as the launch of books by both Hernán Díaz Alonso and Elena Manferdini. The SCI-Arc Cinema Series has now partnered with LACMA to feature a diverse selection of films including Pleasantville with Academy Award-winning production designer Jeannine Oppewall as the special guest and The New Bauhaus with director Alyssa Nahmias.

SCI-Arc’s annual Spring Show exhibition, highlighting the most compelling student projects of the year, will open to the public on May 2.
