November 4 - December 8, 2013
Richard Meier, one of the world’s most celebrated architects, exhibited his artwork at UT’s Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture, alongside collages selected from the International Collage Center.
“Richard Meier: Selected Collage Works” was a presentation of twenty recent works that are a collaboration between Meier and master printer Gary Lichtenstein. The images consisted of eleven color silkscreens of original Meier collages, including some with drawings on the prints.
Meier has won numerous awards, including the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honor, and the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal.
From November 4 to December 9, Meier’s works was displayed along with those of 100 other prominent artists on loan from the collage center, an organization dedicated to the research and presentation of collage as both a cultural and aesthetic narrative.
The “Remix” exhibit explored the impact of collage on artistic and cultural expression and brought together the diverse fragments of rich artistic traditions.
The exhibit was funded by the UT School of Art and the Robert B. Church III Lecture Series, an educational resource of the College of Architecture and Design that presents lectures, exhibits, and films that address contemporary design issues.
