SOLO EXHIBITION BY SEONHEE SUNNY KIM AT GOVERNORS ISLAND

Posted on August 1st, 2019 by Dara Lin

Posted under: Events, The Cooper Union

The opening is this Saturday, August 3rd, 2-6 pm. The exhibit is part of the ongoing Imagination of Space event presented by The Cooper Union and curated by Ceren Bingol. Learn more HERE, and see HERE for detailed visiting information and ferry schedule.

“The Light Lights | Space is about the intangible and varying experiences from the reflection and shadow of light in space. With a thin layer of paper, light defines the shape itself and draws its boundary with the shadow in space. Reflections and shadows shown through the surface of the paper break down the boundaries of dimensional space, creating smooth and firm connections within it.

Seonhee Sunny Kim is a visual creator who deals with tangible and intangible materials originally from Korea and based in Detroit and New York now. She recently earned her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI, USA. This year she was selected as a recipient of New Beginning Award by Merced Benz and during 2019 NYC design week, she won NYCxDesign Award of emerging designer and Wanted design launch pad. Recently, she is collaborating with City of Detroit with her lighting project for Detroit Community Center.”

Diane Lewis: In Memoriam

Posted on May 16th, 2019 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: Academic, The Cooper Union

“The combination of fierce charisma, a fighting spirit, and a stubborn intellectual posture defined her living days, and in hindsight, we come to appreciate the sum of it as an ambition for all of us to emulate. A tireless protagonist, she would conduct reviews that would end some five hours after the end of the day; her love of debate through the jousting of words, ideas, and positions defined the many events she hosted. Lewis left behind many things, but her most recent book, Open City: Existential Urbanity, will serve as a document of the many pedagogies she explored, the constellations of ideas she sponsored, and the platforms of debate she invented.”

HENRY COBB AT COOPER TONIGHT

TONIGHT AT 7PM IN COOPER’S GREAT HALL – – PANEL: THE PREDICAMENT OF ARCHITECTURE

A panel with explore Henry Cobb’s discussion of the predicament of architecture through his recently published book Words & Works 1948-2018. The panel includes Cobb, Nader Tehrani, Preston Scott Cohen, Elizabeth Diller and Marion Weiss.

“On the one hand, it is impossible for architecture to ignore the ethical obligation stemming from the fact that buildings are intended to be useful. On the other hand, it is fatal for architecture to become trapped in the condition of being merely useful. From the ethical perspective, architecture is contaminated by its art status, while from the artistic perspective, it is contaminated by its use status. Yet this is precisely what makes our art so important in the culture: Every work of architecture is inescapably enmeshed in the systems of power and standards of ethical conduct from which its art status demands with equal insistence that it be liberated. The reconciliation of these seemingly irreconcilable demands precisely defines, in my view, the ultimate task of the architect.” – Henry Cobb

This lecture is co-sponsored with The Architectural League of New York. Tickets required.

Located in The Great Hall, in the Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street.
