Did You Know?

This work explores usually unnoticed details of the museum’s north wing, which was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1971.

Description

In a grouping of twelve photographs, Lambri sensitizes us to the complexity and richness of texture and tactility designed into the museum’s north wing. Six of the images are close-ups of its iconic alternating light and dark gray stripes; the other six are close-ups of the joins of solid, monochromatic, medium gray blocks of stone.
