  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

The Architecture/Landscape/Interiors Department at OTIS College of Art and Design is pleased to announce
the George H. Scanlon Foundation Lecture REDUX.2 by ELIZABETH DILLER
Wednesday   19 February 2014   7:30 PM
Ahmanson Auditorium   limited, open seating starting at 7:00 PM  

This lecture is free and open to the public.

Through the initiative and support of its President, Pat Scanlon, the GEORGE H. SCANLON FOUNDATION has generously funded an annual George H. Scanlon Foundation Lecture since 1998.
The George H. Scanlon Foundation Lecture REDUX.2 celebrates this enduring and successful 16-year lecture series by featuring its second lecturer, ELIZABETH DILLER, who will present and compare the work of DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO (formerly Diller + Scofidio) between1999 and 2014.

ELIZABETH DILLER is a founding principal of DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO (DS+R), an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. DS+R’s architectural projects include: the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts expansion and redesign; the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston; the High Line in New York; Blur in Switzerland; the Broad Museum in Los Angeles; the Museum of Image and Sound in Rio de Janeiro; the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive at UC Berkeley; and Culture Shed in the Hudson Yards Development in New York.

DS+R are recipients of the MacArthur Foundation ‘genius’ award, the National Design Award from the Smithsonian, the Brunner Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Centennial Medal of Honor from the American Academy in Rome, and numerous AIA awards. They are fellows of the Royal Institute of British Architects and have been inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Ms. Diller was recently selected as an Aspen Institute Harman-Eisner Artist in Residence and awarded the Barnard Medal of Distinction. In 2003, the Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of the studio’s work, recognizing DS+R’s unorthodox practice. Ms. Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University.
