Scaffolding is both a noun and a verb, object and action. Beyond its role in the construction industry, it is frequently used to erect temporary theaters, create set designs, and support various modes of performance. This lecture explores scaffolding as a conceptual and technical element, as well as its relationship to bodies and space. Speakers include experimental choreographer-artists Elizabeth Streb and Ralph Lemon. Program presented as part of the exhibition Scaffolding, on view at the Center for Architecture.
