The Graham Foundation is pleased to welcome architect and designer Emilio Ambasz, curator of MoMA’s groundbreaking 1972 exhibition Italy: The New Domestic Landscape, and Mark Wasiuta, co-curator of the Graham’s current exhibition Environments and Counter-Environments, for a talk on October 31, 2013. Following an introduction by Mark Wasiuta, Emilio Ambasz will read two texts that critically reflect on the historic 1972 exhibition.
