dreamscapes: art | architecture | fiction



dreamscapes
the pulitzer foundation for the arts 2/11/2011 - august 13, 2011

“as you go through the building, the scenes will change, the mood will change, the fiction will change. if they are subtle enough then you will not think of it as fiction or a story, you will just live it as reality.”
tadao ando, 2000

curators at the pulitzer respond to the multiple fictions and experiences of ando’s architecture. art selection and placement are determined by the art’s formal, material, or metaphorical relationship to the architecture. lights are generally turned off because natural light “brings geometry of the space closer to nature. . . is the soul of a space . . . like breath to a body.” the pulitzer’s watercourt allows light to come off the water and through the glass walls so at certain times of day one sees the movement of the water as a reflection inside the space. ando’s architecture “brings life to what is inside it,” and it is the curator’s privilege to work within this living, constantly changing environment.
excerpt, foreward to the exhibition
