Art, Architecture and the Cuban Revolution of Forms
Art, Architecture and the Cuban Revolution of Forms, a lecture by John A. Loomis

July 12th, 2012


Seattle Central Library

Space.City presents a lecture by John Loomis FAIA, author of the new edition of Revolution of Forms: Cuba's Forgotten Art Schools about the Escueles Nacionales de Arte.  This outstanding architectural achievement of the Cuban Revolution stood for many years neglected in the western suburbs of Havana.  However, the Escueles were conceived and initiated by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara and created by three Architects: Rcardo Porro, Vittorio Garatti, and Roberto Gottardi, with the intent to reinvent architecture, just as the revolution hoped to reinvent society.  The book, Revolution of Forms, takes the reader from that euphoric moment of the beginning of the Cuban Revolution through the subsequent convergence and collision of architecture, ideology and culture in 1960s Cuba, and the extraordinary ultimate fate of the schools.

Special Offer: Arcade is offering complimentary subscriptions to those who attend this Space.City event.

This lecture is in conjunction with the screening of the documentary film, "Unfinished Spaces" by Director Alysa Nahmias, the following three nights of July 13-15th at the Northwest Film Forum.

John Loomis will be speaking live with Steve Scher on 94.9 KUOW the morning of the lecture at 9:30am.

Peter Miller will be hosting a book signing with the author at 5:00pm July 12th, before the lecture at Peter Miller Books.

Tickets available on Brown Paper Tickets:    $10 advance/ $12 door/ $5 student
