Now What?! curators, Lori Brown, Andrea Merrett, Sarah Rafson, Roberta Washington present the Now What?! exhibition as part of the Discursive Practices, Spring 2019 public programming lecture series at the University of Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning.
DISCURSIVE PRACTICES presents the work of architects, urban planners, preservationists and historians whose approach to design bridges multiple territories of knowledge to create new work.
Their provocations operate on discourses that simultaneously have long historical traditions and are actively evolving in the present. By acknowledging and engaging with the cultural and institutional basis of inherited knowledge systems, these speakers challenge reductive modes of analysis and reveal openings for expanding the social reach and relevance of contemporary design
