Summer Institute 2015 facilitated by Nat Chard and Perry Kulper at Plug In ICA.

Summer Institute 2015 | Open Studio

July 29, 2015 to July 30, 2015

Plug In ICA is pleased to host a public presentation of the work and concepts developed during our 2015 Summer Institute, Archival Shadows. Join us Wednesday, July 29th between 12 and 5PM and Thursday, July 30th between 4PM and 9PM for a chance to see first-hand what the participants over the month of July have been creating.

Thirteen architects and artists have participated in Archival Shadows, this year’s iteration of the Summer Institute, which has been loosely themed around contingent architecture with faculty Nat Chard and Perry Kulper. Both faculty and participants will be in attendance over the course of the two days to engage in conversations about their work and the broader ideas developed during their time at the Summer Institute.

All are welcome. The Thursday evening event will be a closing reception.

As a still accumulating record of Archive Shadows, we have been posting daily blogs about the participants, the faculty and their work. Please visit:
