About the exhibition:

Originally commissioned by the Barbican Hub Space in Summer 2019, works on display revisit the architecture of Jean Renaudie and Renée Gailhoustet, in a re-exploration of their work as examples of the advanced spatial thinking of Brutalist Paris. The work is presented as cabinet-based archives of photographs, found library index cards, drawings, notations and screen-based projections.

The exhibition space will be open to the public form 10am-8pm from Monday 11th – Friday 15th November.
