Title Urban Explorations : Works&Words
Curator Grundström, Karin ; Bell, Roberley
Date 2016
English abstract
”Urban explorations – Works&Words” was an exhibition on the practices of researching the urban environment. The exhibition developed from a collegial collaboration between Malmö university, Sweden and Rochester Institute of Technology (R.I.T.) N.Y., U.S.A. The exhibition was curated by Karin Grundström (Urbana studier, Malmö university) and Roberley Bell (Imaging arts and sciences R.I.T.) in collaboration with Jules Chiavaroli (Dept of Architecture, Golisano institute of sustainability, R.I.T.) and Community Design Center in Rochester, which hosted the exhibition. In the curating process, the concept ”urban explorations” was identified as a common starting point. Linguistic and cultural differences prevented the use of alternative concepts such as stad/city; offentlig plats/public place and rum/space. Instead, the practices, i.e. the act of exploring through both verbal and visual means, formed the common basis. Researchers in architecture, planning, design and photography exhibited analyzes of the urban environment through their Works and Words. Colleagues, students and the public participated in a seminar at the opening of the exhibition. ”Urban explorations – Works&Words” was transported to Sweden and exhibited at the MEDEA studio, Malmö University.
Swedish abstract
”Urban explorations – Works&Words” var en utställning om praktiker att utforska urban miljö. Utställningen var resultatet av ett kollegialt samarbete mellan Malmö högskola och Rochester Institute of Technology (R.I.T.) N.Y., U.S.A. Utställningen kurerades av Karin Grundström (Urbana studier, Malmö universitet) och Roberley Bell (Imaging arts and sciences R.I.T.) och genomfördes i samarbete med Jules Chiavaroli (Dept of Architecture, Golisano institute of sustainability, R.I.T.) och Community Design Center i Rochester där utställningen visades. I kureringsprocessen identifierades begreppet ”urban explorations” som gemensam ingångspunkt. Språkliga och kulturella skillnader omöjliggjorde alternativa begrepp som stad/city; offentlig plats/public place och rum/space. Istället var det praktikerna, själva utforskandet av det urbana genom både ord och bild som var gemensam nämnare. Forskare inom arkitektur, planering, design och fotografi ställde ut egna verk som analyserade den urbana miljön. Allmänhet, kollegor och studenter deltog i ett seminarium i samband med utställningens öppnande. Works&Words transporterades till Sverige och visades även i MEDEAs lokal i Niagara vid Malmö universitet.
