Event Details

Curator Pedro Gadanho will speak about the impact of working in a large institutional setting such as MoMA, reflecting in particular on the organization of his first collection rotation show “9+1 Ways of Being Political.” He will also talk about his past experience as a freelance curator, and ideas he has been developing on the role and relevance of curating as a new expressive medium for architecture.

Pedro Gadanho is the Curator for Contemporary Architecture at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York. Previously, he divided his activity between architecture, teaching, writing and curating. With an MA in Art and Architecture and a PhD in Architecture and Mass Media, Pedro is the author of Arquitetura em Público and Interiores 01-010. He is also the former editor of BEYOND bookazine, and maintains the ShrapnelContemporary blog. He was a chief curator of ExperimentaDesign between 2001 and 2003, curated Metaflux at the 2004 Venice Architecture Biennale and exhibitions such as "Post.Rotterdam," "Space Invaders," and "Pancho Guedes, An Alternative Modernist."

The SVA MFA in Design Criticism is a pioneering two-year graduate program that trains students to research, analyze, and evaluate design and its social and environmental implications. Students study with some of the best design writers and thinkers of our time, including MoMA’s senior curator of Architecture and Design Paola Antonelli, Design Observer blogger Alexandra Lange, and New York Times critic Phil Patton. They learn how to curate an exhibition, produce a radio segment, launch a blog, edit a publication, host a lecture series, and stage a major conference. 

The School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City is an established leader and innovator in the education of artists. From its inception in 1947, the faculty has been comprised of professionals working in the arts and art-related fields. SVA provides an environment that nurtures creativity, inventiveness and experimentation, enabling students to develop a strong sense of identity and a clear direction of purpose.

On Tuesday evenings at D-Crit we present lectures by the most thoughtful and provocative writers, editors, designers, and curators practicing today in the interrelated fields of design, architecture and urban planning. Selected to supplement our curriculum with their original methods and alternative viewpoints, these speakers inspire and challenge our students. Our students, in turn, through the discussion they lead, help illuminate the concerns and priorities of design criticism today.
