Schumann in natural-material exhibit

Our 2021-2022 Lecture Series kicks off on Sept. 20, 6 p.m. ET, with an in-person lecture featuring Katie MacDonald and Kyle Schumann, who served as the Tennessee Architecture Fellows in 2019-2020. They also will exhibit in Gallery 103 Sept. 20-Oct. 22. The lecture and exhibit are in the Art + Architecture Building, 1715 Volunteer Blvd.

MacDonald and Schumann will present the fellowship lecture, Lush: From Field to Fabrication. This lecture/exhibition presents an expanding body of work by MacDonald and Schumann, including teaching, research, and creative work conducted during and following the fellowship. Holistically, the work argues for a rethinking of materials in architectural production, forgoing the knowability of standardization for the embodied intelligence and variability of grown matter.

The lecture and exhibit are open to the public. It is funded by the Robert B. Church Memorial Lecture Fund.

Visitors are asked to follow all current guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
