A Bright Spot in “Dark Places”


We’re too scared to go to the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s latest show by ourselves, in which about 80 artist, designers and architects explore “Dark Places,” the way our subconscious deals with physical locations of fear and trauma. However, we’ve heard the “pioneering installation design” by servo is truly remarkable, even if it is a little, um, dark.

“The Architecture of Display: New Approaches to Exhibition Design” will discuss the potential of such revolutionary design. Panelists are Greg Lynn, Lev Manovich from UCSD, Joseph Rosa from The Art Institute of Chicago, and David Erdman of servo. The panel is moderated by Joshua Decter, guest curator of “Dark Places.”

Wednesday, February 15, 7pm, Santa Monica Museum of Art
