Jonas Staal: Art is Architecture is Art?

Thu 28 September 2017

Artists build and architects build. Some artists make architecture. What is the difference (if any) between the architecture an architect makes and the architecture an artist makes? And what broader definitions of architecture can we define through the practice of art, and vice versa? Is architecture a concrete structure, or could we also speak of an architecture of sensibilities, an architecture of ideas, or even an architecture of ideology? Globally renowned Dutch artist Jonas Staal will be in conversation with Glasgow based-artists and curators.

As part of our public engagement programme for 2018, we have commissioned an exhibition with renowned Dutch artist Jonas Staal. This event, organised with Glasgow School of Art and curated by Professor Johnny Rodger, will inform part of the research Staal will be undertaking throughout September.
