SMALL BUILDINGS: built, unbuilt, unbuildable

Deadline: January 9, 2015 (RECEIVE)

SMALL BUILDINGS: built, unbuilt, unbuildable
Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design
Delmar Loop Gallery

Saint Louis, MO
March 13 – May 10, 2015

Architects today don’t build buildings, they make drawings and models. Similarly, a number of contemporary artists make works resembling architectural models, both in terms of scale and concept, while other artists working with site-specific installation make literal models of projects subsequently built. This exhibition will explore the craft of the architectural model through three themes: built, unbuilt, unbuildable, from the book of the same title by Robert Harbison.

Bruce Lindsey and Buzz Spector will select the best works in all craft media from both emerging and established artists. Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design invites architects and artists nationwide with interest in showing their models, maquettes, sculptures, drawings, or other relevant artifacts in the context of craftedness.

Works created in the last three years are eligible. All work must be for sale.

Artists must be 18 years of age and reside in the United States.

Non-refundable entry fee for one or two entries is $35. Students entry fee is $20- please provide a copy of current student ID.
