This exhibition showcases the methods and processes of spolia, a distinctive cultural practice - from the ancient times to ours - focusing on the emerging possibility of the spoliation of the American 20th century – its materials, its inventions, its aesthetics and its debris. The work shown presents a decade of research, analysis, pedagogy and architectural manifestations of spolia as we understand, teach and practice it.
