Group exhibition
June 7 – Sept. 4, 2016

The SCAD Museum of Art presents “Built, World,” a group exhibition featuring works by leading international artists investigating architecture and constructed realities with a variety of media across a range of scale. Through photography, printmaking, sculpture and installation from the miniature to the monumental, this exhibition engages the social landscape, explores the real and mimetic and deconstructs architectural forms, histories and legacies.

Furthermore, “Built, World” explores the relationship between contemporary visual art practices and architecture as form and discipline, and also considers the power and ideology embedded within our built environment. Special attention is given to the underlying issues of the social and political mores of our time. Environmentalism, industrialization, social activism and historical recounts are touchstones traced throughout the works on view.

The exhibition includes works by:

Bernd and Hilla Becher, Germany
Ramón Miranda Beltrán, Puerto Rico
