Global Arts and Cultures | Zoë Ryan lecture

Global Arts and Cultures welcomes architect and scholar Zoë Ryan, director of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to the ICA, she was the John H. Bryan chair and curator of architecture and design at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she founded the contemporary design collection and set the vision for collecting and exhibiting modern and contemporary architecture and design as expanded fields of practice in dialogue with the sociopolitical conditions of the times. Her recent exhibitions include In a Cloud, in a Wall, in a Chair: Six Modernists in Mexico at Midcentury (2019) and Past Forward: Architecture and Design at the Art Institute (ongoing). In 2017, she edited As Seen: Exhibitions that Made Architecture and Design History, the first volume to explore in depth the important role that exhibitions have played in the history of these fields.
