V. Mitch McEwen will deliver a public lecture titled Black Imagination Matters, sponsored by The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts and The Divided City Initiative.
McEwen is principal of McEwen Studio and co-founder of A(n) Office, a collaborative of design studios in Detroit and New York City. McEwen’s work has been awarded grants from the Graham Foundation, Knight Foundation, and New York State Council on the Arts. A(n) Office and McEwen Studio projects have been commissioned by the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and the Istanbul Design Biennial. McEwen Studio projects in Detroit have produced a series of operations on houses previously owned by the Detroit Land Bank Authority. McEwen’s work in urban design and architecture began at Bernard Tschumi Architects and the New York City Department of City Planning, as well as founding the Brooklyn-based nonprofit SUPERFRONT.
The 6:30 p.m. lecture is preceded by a 6:00 p.m. reception.
