Your perfect Friday: Las Vegas Studio, Intuit Show of Folk and Outsider Art
Posted in #Chicago blog by Mark Bieganski on Nov 5, 2010 at 11:06am
At a time when stolid, formalist modern buildings reigned, architects Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown went down to the Las Vegas strip for a lesson in kitsch. The architects took snapshots—displayed in the exhibit “Las Vegas Studio”(Graham Foundation, Madlener House, 4 W Burton Pl; grahamfoundation.org; 11am–5pm, free)—and created the 1971 book Learning from Las Vegas. The tome hugely impacted architecture, opening up the possibility for highbrow creators to embrace popular culture. Beyond all that architecture talk, the pictures are seriously awesome.
