Fabrizio Gallanti: Pantographic experience. The conundrum of the architectural display

17/6 2015 7 pm

The relationship between curatorial practice, exhibition design and architecture has historically been a fertile and problematic terrain for experimentation. Captions, mock-ups, replicas, frames, models, wall-texts, vitrines, Plexiglas, stencils, beamers, stands, audio-guides, flat screens, gypsum walls, plywood, humidifiers constitute an ever changing panoply of apparatuses to engage audiences and generate discourse. The question recurs over and over: how do we use space to communicate?

Fabrizio Gallanti has wide-raging and international experience in architectural design, education, publication, and exhibitions. He holds a Ph.D. in architectural design from the Politecnico di Torino (Turin, Italy 2001) and an M. Arch. from the University of Genova (1995). In 1998 he was among the founding members of gruppo A12, a collective of architects dedicated to the hybridization of architectural design and visual arts (www.gruppoa12.org), with which he collaborated until 2004. He has taught in Chile, Italy, UK and the USA. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the architecture editor at Abitare magazine and chief editor of the Abitare web-site. Between 2011 and 2014 he was the Associate Director Programs at the Canadian Centre of Architecture in Montréal, Canada. In 2014 he was the first senior Mellon fellow at the School of Architecture of Princeton University. He is the founding member of the research practice FIG Projects (www.fig-projects.com).
