For the past five years the Phase 2 exhibitions programme has been running at 8 Fitzroy St, London. The programme was created in 2008 to explore connections between art, design and engineering.
Over the next two years Phase 2 will be organising touring and pop-up exhibitions and events in other regions. Through its curated exhibitions Arup aims to engage with the creative community, the general public and its project partners.
Phase 2’s latest exhibition Traces of Peter Rice, curated by Jennifer Greitschus, celebrates the life and work of Peter Rice (1935-1992), one of Arup’s most pioneering structural engineers. The exhibition includes design stories from three of Rice’s projects: Centre Pompidou, the Menil Collection, Houston and the Full-Moon Theatre near Montpellier.
View a new documentary film about Peter Rice, created by Ben Richardson, commissioned for the exhibition.
The exhibition displayed at 8 Fitzroy St, London between 27 November 2012 and 5 April 2013 will tour to the Farmleigh Gallery, Dublin, opening on 5 October 2013.
Traces de Peter Rice opens at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris, on 16 May continuing until 30 June. Curated by Kevin Barry, this exhibition focuses on Peter Rice’s work in France.
The London and Paris exhibitions will come together at the Farmleigh Gallery, Dublin, in October. Further information to follow.
