Curated by the MAXXI’s Pippo Ciorra, Elena Motisi, and Elena Tinacci, the Buone Nuove/Good News: Women In Architecture exhibition in Rome, Italy, brings together the work of groundbreaking designers from across history and the globe, showcasing the critical work of historical architects, collectives of the 1970s, and contemporary practitioners.
On Tuesday October 3rd, 2023 from 6:30-8pm EST, Diamond Schmitt and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Toronto will present a special public lecture, following upon the exhibition’s success at the MAXXI last summer. Exhibition curator Pippo Ciorra will be joined by Maria Claudia Clemente (co-founder and director of studio Labics), one of the protagonists of the exhibition and an outstanding designer, researcher and educator in Italy, to discuss the expansive issues that informed the exhibition.
Together they will highlight the work of ground breaking designers from across history and the globe, and the critical work of pioneering female architects; profile contemporary practitioners; and explore gender and space and the evolving relationship between architecture and society.
