Revisiting Architecture Collections Sneak Peek Live on Instagram
Curator Anna Ulrikke Andersen lifts the veil on the exhibition Revisiting Architecture Collections, which looks at architecture from the perspective of chronic illness through an Instagram takeover of the Royal Academy of Arts (RA), whose extensive collection will be represented. The talk is born out of an invitation made to the Norwegian architectural historian and filmmaker, by Helen Ikla, RA's architecture programme and awards manager, about the curatorial approach to the exhibition commissioned by the Triennale. This talk, broadcast live on June 7, 2021, is part of the series Landscapes of Care, which is also the theme proposed for the 2021 edition of the Future Architecture call.
Andersen's look creates a guiding line for the collections of the seven museums, members of the Future Architecture Platform, represented in the exhibition that is being prepared. The content revolves around her experience, both personal and as a researcher of architecture, and explores the role of architecture in the well-being of people with chronic illness. We invite you to join this talk on Instagram (@architecture_ra) on Monday, June 7, at 2 pm (UTC+1) where we will get to know the inspirations as well as some contents of scientific illustrations from the 18th and 19th centuries.
