THE RALLY 12/23
Date: Friday 9 July 1976
The Rally: Celebrating the Art and Wit of Architecture: an event held at Art Net during the heatwave of July 1976. During the few years of its effervescent existence under Peter Cook's curatorship, Art Net was part art gallery, part architectural exhibition space, and part tribal gathering for various 'scenes'. Alongside the publication of the magazine Net, the space on West Central Street hosted a series of notable exhibitions, talks, and conferences. Peter Cook described Art Net as 'a kind of ad hoc institution where we hope that the people who are talking will knock up against one another' - a hope repeatedly fulfilled during the two weeks of The Rally. Hans Hollein discusses the conceptualization of the city as a series of amorphous spaces. He presents projects relating to orientation, surfaces, environmental conditioning, lighting, using examples from his own work to demonstrate flexible use and adaptable surroundings.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
