Since the 1960s, art and architecture have experienced a series of radical and reciprocal trades. While artists have simulated ‘architectural’ means like plans and models, built structures and pavilions outside art institutions, or intervened in urban and public spaces, architects have employed ‘artistic’ strategies inside art institutions, in exhibitions, biennales and art events. Studies in Architecture and Art explores the reciprocal trade between the disciplines of architecture and art.

Architecture, Art, Theory / History / Criticism
On artists adopting architectural means and architects adopting artistic strategies, contains in-depth studies of both historical and contemporary examples. Trading between Architecture and Art zooms in on specific examples or ‘cases’ of these two-way transactions: artists adopting architectural means on the one hand, and architects adopting artistic strategies on the other. In particular, it presents in-depth studies of both historical and contemporary examples of the transposition of means and strategies from architecture to art, and vice versa, up to the point that established understandings of institutional categories, disciplinary concepts, and concrete practices become interestingly opaque, and meanings provocatively uncertain.

Susan Holden is an architect, architectural educator and researcher with a PhD in Architecture from the University of Queensland (2014), and professional qualifications and experience.
