PUBLIC PROGRAMS:
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 3:00PM
Aaron Betsky, Blob Utopia: Digital Destiny or Aesthetic Escape?
For centuries, architects have promised to build us a better world. In their visions, new technologies ironically bring us closer to a return to nature without artificial forms. Is this really our destiny, or is it just one more mirage?
Presented by the Technology and Society Lecture Series at Mills College.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 7:30PM
Angela Dufresne, Imitation of Life, or why Queen Jane Should be Approximately
In her paintings, New York-based Angela Dufresne irreverently concocts imaginary communities that satisfy her vision for the world. She describes her paintings, which bring together disparate sources from film, music, architecture, and the history of painting, as "mashups" or hybrids.

All lectures are in Danforth Lecture Hall, Art Building.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 144-page book entitled, Revisiting the Glass House: Contemporary Art and Modern Architecture, co-published by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Mills College Art Museum, and Yale University Press. The book includes essays by David Auburn, Jessica Hough, Mónica Ramírez–Montagut, and Joseph Rosa.

Painting the Glass House: Artists Revisit Modern Architecture has been organized by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum and has been supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, the LEF Foundation, the Joan Danforth Art Museum Endowment, and the Agnes Cowles Bourne Fund for Special Exhibitions.
