McElheny’s model-scale landscape depicting two structures—an “Alpine Cathedral” and a “City-Crown”—is a critique of the utopian ideals embodied in twentieth-century modernism. This program, with McElheny and artist Chris Burden, focuses on the use of architecture in the sculptural model, through presentations and a discussion moderated by Joshua Siegel, organizer of the exhibition. <i>Note: This recording only includes Joshua Siegel and Josiah McElheny's talks.</i></p> </div> <form action="./" class="share"> <a href="#" class="selected"
