For our upcoming exhibition Closed Worlds, join us for a screening of Nicolas Roeg‘s surreal film, The Man Who Fell to Earth – part of an ongoing film series curated in response to our exhibition program. Presented in partnership with Golden Age Cinema & Bar, this science fiction cult classic stars David Bowie as a humanoid alien who crash lands on Earth. The film will be introduced by Endriana Audisho, lecturer in the UTS School of Architecture.
What do outer space capsules, submarines, and office buildings have in common? Each was conceived as a closed system: partial reconstructions of the world in time and in space. Featuring an archive of 41 historical living prototypes from 1927 to the present – an unexplored genealogy of closed resource regeneration systems – Closed Worlds, curated by Lydia Kallipoliti, documents a disciplinary transformation and the rise of a new environmental consensus.
Closed Worlds was originally commissioned by Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York and is presented by UTS ART in partnership with the UTS School of Architecture.
