Jorge Pardo: Prototype

September 17, 2003–January 11, 2004, Dia Chelsea


Prototype is a full-scale variant of a plywood structure that will be adapted for diverse functions, ranging from a house in the tropics to a movie theater in an urban park. Made in Pardo’s studio, this kit capitalizes on the potential of computer-based technologies to introduce an economic vocabulary based on irregular geometric forms and tensile structural systems.

Support for this exhibition was provided by Friedrich Petzel Gallery and the members of the Dia Art Council.
