Doreen McCarthy Guest Lecture

06:30 pm to 08:00 pm
The Republic Building
https://events.iu.edu/soaadiub/view/event/event_id/105786

Join the Indiana University J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program for a lecture by guest artist Doreen McCarthy at The Republic Building on April 7 at 6:30 pm.

Doreen McCarthy’s Artist Statement:
“My work is a consequential step of giving form to space and imagination. The sculptures are about how to change something in a way that keeps the before, after and intervening transformation equally visible the transformative abilities of art-condensation of materials, context, community and intent-are the core of my art making practice. Perceptions of art can be considered and understood within the milieu of one’s environment and as a paradigm of culture. Specific site projects inform the development of my new sculptures as the history of each place provides context for the image, scale and material within the public or private domain.

My production often appears to present aesthetic oxymoron’s that occupy both sides of formal and conceptual oppositions such as material versus effect. I am currently developing sculptures that continue to circumvent barriers of spatial articulation.

I have worked with non-traditional materials employing corrugated cardboard, inflated plastic, nylon and Plexiglas both in the studio and with the aid of industrial fabricators. I explore scale, building and modeling of objects, translucency and the absence and presence of objecthood.

Physically shifting the scale, material and site alters the subjectivity of experience. My current work is intended to further incorporate this dialogue and apply it to a larger, public space designed to change the way we are informed by and see the world we live in, questioning the notions of perception and how the conversation between timelessness and static objecthood may be renegotiated.”

An opening reception for the Doreen McCarthy Exhibition will be held on Thursday, April 9 from 6:00-8:00 pm. The exhibition will run from April 9 – May 5, 2020.

Jim Polshek Guest Lecture

06:30 pm to 08:00 pm
The Republic Building
https://events.iu.edu/soaadiub/view/event/event_id/109772

Join the Indiana University J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program for a lecture by guest architect Jim Polshek at The Republic Building (333 2nd Street, Columbus, IN 47201) on Thursday, April 16 at 6:30 pm. The lecture will take place in the auditorium.

A founder of a highly decorated firm celebrated for its human-centered and inspiring design solutions, an educator of an entire generation of design professionals, and a generous creative spirit, James Stewart Polshek, FAIA, has crafted a legacy of idealism etched in every facet of his contributions to both society and the profession.

Born in Akron, Ohio, Polshek earned a Master of Architecture degree from Yale in 1955. The office that Polshek began in 1963 as, James Stewart Polshek Architect evolved through multiple iterations. Following his retirement in 2005, the firm transitioned in 2010 to Ennead Architects. Polshek has fostered an environment wherein design excellence, effective collaboration and rigorous research work in concert to create enduring architecture. His unparalleled vision and leadership has earned the firm countless accolades, including more than 200 design awards, the 1992 AIA Architecture Firm Award, and 15 National Honor Awards for Architecture.

Polshek’s 1987 restoration and renovation of New York’s Carnegie Hall began with a master plan that helped establish his enduring approach to revitalization. A complete restoration of the hall’s original details as well as the implementation of new ones — lighting, graphics, and a new marquee — were coupled with a heavy dose of advocacy for landmark buildings threatened by market forces.

In Washington, D.C., the 645,000-square-foot Newseum/Freedom Forum Headquarters, completed in 2008, is a monument to journalism and free speech. The architectural expression of the institution’s mission manifests in a symbol of openness: a 4,500-square-foot clear glass “window” woven into the fabric of the city’s Penn Quarter. Polshek’s National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, just a block from Independence Hall, references the immigrant experience in America through two interlocking volumes of opaqueness and transparency. The museum’s high-profile historical context bolsters its efforts to inspire people of all backgrounds.

Concurrent to leading one of the nation’s most recognized firms, Polshek served as dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation from 1972 to 1987. At the time, Columbia played a central role in the debate over style and meaning during a period in which architecture was being fundamentally questioned. His collaborative spirit led to a complete revision of the school’s curriculum and direction that, in turn, reversed its decline and attracted world-class faculty.

Polshek’s sensitivity as an architect and his willingness to give credit to others—whether they be his clients, partners, staff, or collaborators—have helped restore the promise that architecture can be an uplifting force in the world. Everywhere that he has worked, and throughout his eloquent writings, he has raised the level of discussion while pursuing an unambiguous goal of architecture as a healing art.
