Opportunities: Photomontage and Landscape Architecture
ASLA’s Opportunities and Events page provides users with the latest information on everything from conferences and meetings to calls for papers, requests for qualifications, consulting opportunities, and competitions. Below, an ambitious exhibit puts the profession in the public’s eye.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston
Composite Landscapes examines one of landscape architecture’s most recognizable representational forms, the montage view. The exhibition gathers work from a select group of influential contemporary artists and a dozen of the world’s leading landscape architects. These composite views reveal practices of photomontage depicting the conceptual, experiential, and temporal dimensions of landscape.
The first exhibition of its kind in North America, Composite Landscapes illustrates the analog origins of a method now rendered ubiquitous through digital means. In revisiting the composite landscape view as a cultural form, Composite Landscapes illuminates the contemporary status of the photographically constructed image for the design disciplines, and beyond.
Curated by Charles Waldheim, Ruettgers Consulting Curator of Landscape, with Assistant Curator Andrea Hansen.
