Fall Museum Exhibits

Fall Museum Exhibits

Beginning this October, get ready to experience museums … lots of them! Whether you’re located in Los Angeles, London, Montreal, Arkansas or New York, check out some exciting exhibits taking place this Fall. “It is a group of seasonal offerings that reflect the state of the profession, to be sure. Credit remains tight for commercial and civic projects, for the most part, which means that there is plenty of time for retrospective analysis — and that completed buildings continue to get outsize attention,” explained Christopher Hawthorne for the LA Times.

Check out the list of museums after the break.

Pacific Standard Time, a collaborative effort among more than 60 cultural institutions of Southern California, is organizing a showing of every major LA art movement from 1945 through 1980. In West Hollywood, check out their Sympathetic Seeing: Esther McCoy and the Heart of American Modernist Architecture and Design at the MAK Center as it produces an overdue tribute to McCoy, the architecture critic and historian who helped define California modernism for a broad audience. Also in West Hollywood includes the Los Angeles architects MDA Johnson Favaro’s new library sitting in the shadow of Cesar Pelli’s Pacific Design Center.

If you are in London, try The Barbican Art Gallery‘s exhibit on OMA/Progress curated by Rotor, a talented young Belgian design collective. Imperfect Health will be on display at Canada’s leading museum of architecture and design in Montreal. The exhibit focuses on the link between urban design and public health, searching for ways that architects can help tackle obesity, asthma and other ailments.

In Arkansas, Moshe Safdie’s expansion project at Crystal Bridges Museum will open to share Alice Walton’s, an heir to the Wal-Mart fortune, collection of American art. And, in New York, Reconsidering Postmodernism will allow visitors to discuss ideas with Michael Graves, Leon Krier and Robert A.M. Stern at the CUNY Graduate Center.
