This lecture is organized in response to Stockholder's installation, Your Skin in this Weather Bourne Eye-Threads & Swollen Perfume, which incorporates a diverse array of materials and textures, transforming the 4,000 square foot ground floor gallery. The exhibition opened on October 5, 1995 and will continue through June 23, 1996. Hours are Thursday through Sunday, 12 noon to 6:00 p.m.

Currently on leave from Princeton, Colomina is a Samuel H. Kress Senior Fellow at CASVA (Center for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts), at the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., where she is working on a book about the relationships between war and modern architecture.
