Variable Dimensions

Exhibition, MAAT, Lisbon, Portugal.


Until May 22, 2017
Variable Dimensions is a descriptive term commonly used in artwork captions, especially in the field of contemporary art, but rarely if ever is it used in architecture, where dimensions are necessarily predefined. This exhibition suggests a fresh look on this difference and reinvents dialogues between artists and architecture.
Organised around core subjects, it covers topics such as the relationship between contemporary cities and architecture, the virtualisation of urban social relations, different aspects of living, the home and domestic space, architectural and modernist utopias, and lastly, works that are directly related to ideas of scale, size, and measuring instruments and systems.
