Join us for a public lecture by Yolande Daniels from Studio Sumo and Parsons School of Design, on Monday, Feb. 19, 2018.

Yolande Daniels is a founding partner of studioSUMO, an academic/architecture partnership focused on innovative design involving research, formal exploration, and material invention in Long Island City, NY.  Daniels’s research interest in revealing connections between social systems and the spaces they are enacted in has led to experimental formal strategies derived from non-linear and informal systems, and an interest in pattern-making logic, rule-sets and games. Expanding upon the theorization of technologies of power, she explores how certain concepts (race and gender, for example) are produced as technologies of difference.

Her works are formalized in experimental essays that mix theoretical, poetic and graphic genres or in installation projects using architectural methods. Daniels has taught as a visiting professor at The City University of New York, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Howard University, Columbia University, Josai International University, the University of Michigan, and Pratt Institute.

This lecture is funded by the Robert B. Church Memorial Lecture fund.  Unless otherwise noted, lectures begin at 5:30 p.m. in Rm. 109/McCarty Auditorium in the Art + Architecture Building, 1715 Volunteer Blvd.  All are welcome.
