False Front, Christopher Hartshorne, 2013

Christopher Hartshorne has a new show at Napoleon Gallery. Read about it here: http://napoleonnapoleon.com/2013/04/01/forces_not_forms/

There was a lot of internet traffic supporting Denise Scott Brown’s notion that the Pritzker Foundation owes here an inclusion ceremony to make amends for omitting her when her husband and architectural partner Robert Venturi received the Pritzker Prize in 1991. This thoughtful, in depth interview gives the most insight into Scott Brown’s experience:  http://www.architectmagazine.com/design/denise-scott-brown-interview.aspx

To support her, sign the petition here: https://www.change.org/petitions/the-pritzker-architecture-prize-committee-recognize-denise-scott-brown-for-her-work-in-robert-venturi-s-1991-prize
