FIELDWORK: recent projects by Paul de Guzman
Aug 18th | 7-10PM | Room 106 at The Waldorf Hotel | Free

In Fieldwork, de Guzman draws from a source collection of architectural postcards in an attempt at building an archive of historical, urban experiences. These postcards are ephemeral remnants of an urban history that endured a nomadic journey through the postal system. The projects in Fieldwork present findings from urban architectural encounters, and implicate history as material for artistic modelling. The exhibition runs from August 18th to September 4th @ Black & Yellow, 1489 East Hastings Street
