You Are Here brings together work by two artists who take different approaches to exploring our engagement with the architectural world. German photographer Candida Höfer’s lush color photographs of historic and contemporary cultural spaces absorb the viewer with both their scale and detail. Employing the seemingly disparate media of video and etching, French-born Cyprien Gaillard probes the messy, charged legacy of the Modernist housing block abroad. At once disjunctive and complementary, these two bodies of work capture the constant oscillation between what we make of our buildings, and what they make of us.
This exhibition is organized by Tracy Myers, curator of architecture at the Heinz Architectural Center.
