Architectural Association
The Unprimed Canvas
04th February 2011

The Unprimed Canvas is related to Francis Bacon’s decision to use an unprimed canvas, for example, every mark in the making of the work is very important. This has everything to do with ecology as a complex system. Drawing forth the idea that architecture could be embedded within the indelible canvas of our tellurian environment.

The symposium will be quite speculative in talking about the powerful act of making in design through the tactics and strategies deployed in practices from architecture, art, performance and philosophy.
