The ARCHIZINES initiative, showcasing international new architecture fanzines, journals and magazines from around the world, launched and curated by Elias Redstone in 2011, is stepping up a further gear as the global tour of the ARCHIZINES exhibition continues to accelerate and extend its reach to (almost) the four corners of the earth.
Already on show in Sydney, at Object: Australian Centre for Design, where it runs until 4 May, the next instalment will open this Friday in Los Angeles at the UCLA Architecture and Urban Design School. The evening will kick-off at 6.30pm with a panel discussion moderated by Sylvia Lavin, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design Professor and Director of Critical Studies, on differing approaches to subversive visual culture and its relationship to architectural criticism.
Panelists will include, as well as Elias Redstone, curator of “ARCHIZINES”, Susan Morgan, editor of “Art Papers on Design and Architecture” magazine; Thomas Lawson, Dean of the School of Art at the California Institute of the Arts and editor of online art magazine “East of Borneo”; John Southern, founding principal of Urban Operations; Leonard Koren, editor of “Wet” magazine; and Mimi Zeiger, journalist and critic. An opening reception will follow immediately after the discussion at 8pm in the Perloff Gallery.
In the coming months, the ARCHIZINES exhibition tour is also due to hit ground in Buenos Aires, assisted by PLOT magazine, on May 17 at the Torcuato Di Tella University, and then in Weil am Rhein on June 7 at the Vitra Design Museum. And there's sure to be more venues coming up, so it seems that sometime, somewhere near you, there’ll be the chance to see it...
