SAIC LECTURE: TRASH TALKS

Trash Talks hopes to provide an alternative platform for a series of open conversations between artists, designers and thinkers in search for a more optimistic dialogue around the creative potential of architectural refuse. Participants are invited to share strategies through built work, speculations, or calls to action that embrace the full spectrum of architecture’s material afterlives. From second hand salvage economies to the political agency of ruins, from reconstructed traces to an aesthetics of the formless—what are the possible futures that lie beyond the rubble heaps?

Andrew Balster, Dennis Maher, Thom Moran, Eric Nordstrom, David Schalliol, Anne Sullivan, and Amanda Williams, moderated by Ang Li
