“Making Connections with Julie Mehretu” - Deen Sharp

Hilary Huckins-Weidner

Terreform Co-director and AKPIA@MIT Post-Doc Fellow Deen Sharp was in discussion with artist Julie Mehretu as part of a panel organized by the Aga Khan Program at MIT.

Panelists included:
Julie Mehretu, New York based artist
Miriam Cooke, Professor Emerita, Duke University
Asma Naeem, Curator, The Baltimore Museum of Art
Nasser Rabbat, Director, AKPIA@MIT
Deen Sharp, AKPIA@MIT Post-Doctoral Fellow

Early on in the process of putting together Beyond the Square, Deen had approached Julie Mehretu about including her work on Egypt–specifically, Mogamma (A Painting in Four Parts) (2012) and Cairo (2013). Asking her felt like a long shot so we were both over the moon when she agreed to be involved. (Co-editor Claire Panetta in Jadaliyya).

"The Calumet Collaborations" at SAIC

Hilary Huckins-Weidner

The Calumet Collaborations: Making Many Little Plans is a collective project of a group of architectural schools to investigate an enormous swath of de-industrialized land on the South Side of Chicago, with a supporting ecology that spans state boundaries from Illinois to Michigan. The project includes participants from the City College of New York, Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), SAIC, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Harvard University. Using an inductive strategy based on the design of a series of highly-sustainable neighborhoods and founded on a rigorous investigation of existing environments, economies, ecologies, and social networks, the objective is to design a series of interventions—at a wide range of scales and operations—that can lead to futures for an area in search of dramatic transition. Our aim is not simply to produce a series of plans but to invent new styles for cooperative design and a vision for the region.

Panelists: Lee Bey, Brad Hunt, Roberta Feldman, Phil Enquist, Martin Felsen
Moderated by Michael Sorkin
