Columbus College of Art and Design
USA United States of America
This international traveling exhibition is based on the premise that museums, especially art museums, epitomize current architectural positions or trends. Museums for a New Millennium presents 26 architectural milestones that have been designed, were under construction, or completed at the close of the 20th century. Buildings included in the exhibition are the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao by Frank Gehry, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles by Richard Meier, the Beyeler Museum in Basel, Switzerland by Renzo Piano, as well as recent projects in the Midwest, such as Santiago Calatravaís Milwaukee Art Museum and Zaha Hadidís Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati.
Sketches, drawings and models will be presented with detailed descriptions, making the exhibition a comprehensive history of museum architecture in the last decade of the 20th century. Organized by The Art Centre Basel, the exhibition has been traveling through Europe since February 2000. Following the U.S. showings in Fort Worth, Milwaukee and Columbus, Museums for a New Millennium will travel to Brazil, Mexico and Japan.
This exhibition will be presented in both CCADís Canzani Center Gallery and the Columbus Museum of Art.
