ASHER ISRAELOW’s (M.Arch 2008) work, along with that of four others, will be shown at this event.
“We are creating separate pieces that will come together in the “Book by Book” bookstore at Hope Artiste Village. The installation is based on conceptual and physical juxtapositions. Each piece is executed in a different technique but all are revolving around the ideas of architecture, structures, weight and lightness. Come by and see for yourself what all of this means!
The reception will be held on Saturday, February 21st at Hope Artiste Village, 1005 Main Street, Suite 2233, from 3:30-8 PM. It is about a 10 minute ride from downtown. Bus number 99 (going down Main Street) will take you right to the entrance of the building! Stop by and enjoy the art, the people, the food, the drinks and the music.” More information.>
ARCHITECTURE SHOW AT THE CARR HAUS.
This coming Thursday, Feb 19th, 6PM. See/ask Cezar N. for details, or ask him for a poster. At least come to see Cezar’s new haircut!
Joseph Ng (curator, B.Arch 2008) on the show: “The first Carr Haus gallery show was conceived by an architecture student five years ago because he was frustrated that students work did not have an exhibition outlet beyond the BEB. Since then, there has not been another architecture related show so all I did was to bring it back because I felt the same way as that architecture student did five year ago.
It is often said that once you are sucked into the BEB bubble that you are never seen again and others have no idea what you do. So the pieces selected in this show are snippets of the hand-crafted projects we do within the major and other endeavors that architecture students partake in during their studies here.”

“Between March 20 and April 9 of 2004, OBRA was invited to exhibit at the BEB Gallery at the Rhode Island School of Design. The gallery is approximately 20’ x 40’ with 9’-8” ceilings. The four walls of the room have doors along the main central axis of the space, and three large columns obstruct views of potential exhibits. The geometry of the room is irregular, with two corners protruding into the space at 45 degrees on one side. The ceilings are low and made of low-quality acoustic tile. The artificial light falls harshly down from incandescent spot lamps. RISD has agreed to pay for minimal exhibition expenses and to provide student labor to help install the work. The exhibit is to be entitled ARCHITETTURA POVERA in the spirit of the guiding principles of experimentation unhindered by tradition, complete openness towards materials and processes, and the rejection of a defined style which characterized the “Arte Povera” movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s in Italy…”
