Be part of the conversation: azarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson Architecture blog covers architecture and civic topics that comment on what’s happening in the Valley’s diverse design community. Here’s what’s happening now:

Film + Conversation: Exhibition

Film + Conversation: Exhibition

In filmmaking, set design and cinematic staging can often invoke whatever feelings the auteur is trying to convey to the audience. In Joanna Hogg's 'Exhibition,' the director uses a contemporary home in Chelsea to this effect.

The architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright often suggests that design is a reflection of humanity. The two concepts are intrinsically linked. To tie this to another Wright-ism,  “The space within becomes the reality of the building.”

So what does this mean for the occupants of an unhappy home?

That’s a question posed by writer/director Joanna Hogg’s drama ‘Exhibition,’ where the space within takes on a perpetual ennui. The film examines the couple’s relationship to their contemporary home, as SMoCA described as “a labyrinth, refuge, prison and emotional battleground.”

Join us tomorrow evening at the SMoCa lounge in Scottsdale for a showing of the film, which stars Liam Gillick and Australian punk-rock star Viv Albertine. Afterward stay tuned for a discussion with our very own azarchitecture agent Sherry Cameron.

It should be an interesting discussion!
