Event Description

The lecture will focus on the structure of Anthony Titus’s transdisciplinary practice of art and architecture. Titus will speak about a selection of several exhibitions, installations, and projects that span the past decade. Emphasis will be placed upon the processes and procedures as well as the final product of the works. Looking to explore and discover new possibilities between the spaces of architecture, sculpture, and painting Titus will share drawings, diagrams, models, and photographs of the projects. The conversation and exchange between these disciplines serves as a rich space of opportunity to enhance and expand our current understanding of space, form, color, and structure as participants in a larger cultural landscape.  

Reference will be made to Titus’s architectural education at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, under the deanship of John Hejduk as well as his graduate education in painting at the University of Chicago. In addition to his independent studio work, Titus has served as an architectural educator for the past two decades and he will include a small selection of teaching work in dialogue with his studio practice.

The research project is titled Twisted Siblings: Relationships Between Contemporary Painting and Digital Architecture. His work has been exhibited and published widely and includes a current solo exhibition titled Ruptures and Reconciliations at ‘T’ Space in Rhinebeck, NY.
