About this event

Please join us via Zoom on April 7 at 2 PM CDT for a LECTURE by Esther Choi.

Zoom invitation details will be provided upon registration.

Esther Choi is a Canadian artist and architectural historian based in New York. Her interest in theories of space and human perception, which developed while pursuing her MFA at Concordia University, led her to study architectural history at Harvard University and, later, her Ph.D. at Princeton University. Her artistic work primarily examines how concepts of nature—and, by extension, beliefs about what is natural—are shaped by processes of modernization. Informed by her historical research, her practice typically involves the creation of sculptures and models used in photographic tableaux and moving image installations. She is also interested in experimental forms of institutional and cultural critique. Choi's work has been exhibited internationally and featured in T: The New York Times Style Magazine, 032C, and more. She is the author of the artist’s book Le Corbuffet (Prestel, 2019) and co-editor of Architecture at the Edge of Everything Else (MIT Press, 2010) and Architecture Is All Over (Columbia U Press, 2017).

Esther Choi's Modern Societies I is currently on view at Texas State Galleries from January 19–April 11. Watch Modern Societies I FOR A LIMITED TIME on our website from March 12 @ 12 noon CDT–March 14 @ noon CDT.
