Alserkal Avenue Foundation presents in collaboration with White Chapel gallery a landmark exhibition in and around Concrete “Is This Tomorrow?”. Curated by Whitechapel Gallery chief curator Lydia Yee, the show explores the confluence of art and architecture, as a reflection and celebration of Concrete having been shortlisted for the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
Previously shown at White Chapel Gallery, “Is This Tomorrow?” features here four experiential collaborations between leading artists and architects investigating visions of the future, including a site-specific commission by Rana Begum and Marina Tabassum Architects.
The four pairings of international artists and architects involved – Amalia Pica and 6a, Cao Fei and mono office, Mariana Castillo Deball and Tatiana Bilbao Estudio, and Rana Begum and Marina Tabassum Architects – investigate universal topics including borders, privacy, living space, and our relationship with technology.
