Two Ships Passing

Event Details
Event Title:Visual Arts Center presents Two Ships Passing with David Heymann (More Information)
Event Description:

The VAC, in collaboration with the art publication Pastelegram, introduces Two Ships Passing. Often said of two people who meet for a brief but intense moment, this conversation series explores pertinent topics within the creative community. In each edition of Two Ships Passing, one speaker will be invited and prompted to request the company of a committed colleague, mentor, or perhaps even a new acquaintance, creating a unique pairing for a dialogue. This remarkable event aims to establish a reactive space where ideas will be exchanged and unexpected conclusions will be gained.

This edition of Two Ships Passing presents a conversation about ways of thinking about and reacting to landscapes, whether through architecture, performance, photography, or art history (among other possibilities).

David Heymann is an architect and the Harwell Hamilton Harris Regents Professor in the School of Architecture. He received a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. Heymann worked for Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, and I.M Pei and Partners, prior to founding his own firm. The focus of Heymann’s design practice, writing and research is the complex relationship of buildings and landscapes, particularly natural landscapes.
