October 18, Royal Academy of Arts, Geological Society, and Piccadilly (London)
*I am cooperating in this lecture of Diana Balmori, landscape and urban designer (http://www.balmori.com/).
I have kept talking with Ms. Balmori through her manifest for this lecture.
This time, the new work (ten photograph/drawing works) produced as the reaction to the conversation is introduced, and these works are exhibited as a reference work.
*It is necessary to reserve the ticket for seeing the lecture.
Landscape is an art of the present, fundamental to how we shape and understand both the built and natural environments. In this event chaired by art critic Richard Cork, internationally acclaimed landscape and urban designer, Diana Balmori, proposes a twenty-five-point Landscape Manifesto that seeks to ‘realign’ landscape’s role as a transformative and potentially transgressive art. She presents the Manifesto alongside specially devised work of Japanese video artist Mami Kosemura and a response by Eric Parry RA.
