Curator Talk | Andreas Angelidakis and Beatrice Galilee, Associate Curator of Architecture and Design at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Fri | 6:30 PM
Please join us for a conversation between Andreas Angelidakis, curator of Fin de Siècle, and Beatrice Galilee, Associate Curator of Architecture and Design at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Friday, September 19, at 6:30 pm.
Trained as an architect, Andreas Angelidakis switches roles between artist, curator, architect and teacher. His multidisciplinary practice often focuses around the internet, and the perceptive and behavioral changes it has brought about. Recently, Angelidakis worked at Garage, Moscow on a space for the exhibition of instruction-based artworks DO IT; curated and designed a survey exhibition of the Dakis Joannou collection at DESTE foundation in Athens; designed a show of contemporary magazines at the Haus der Kunst in Munich; and created the installation Crash Pad, which acted as the preliminary statement for the 8th Berlin Biennial. Angelidakis’s work is currently the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Greece. It is also part of the Greek Pavilion at the 14th Architecture Biennale in Venice. Upcoming shows include Period Rooms at the Niuewe Institut, Rotterdam, and designing the exhibition architecture for a survey exhibition of film director Alejandro Jodorowsky at the CAPC in Bordeaux.
Beatrice Galilee is the Daniel Brodsky Associate Curator of Architecture and Design, in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Previously, she was chief curator of the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Close, Closer, where she presented alternative realms of architectural and spatial practice. She was co-curator at the 2011 Gwangju Design Biennale, Design is Design is Not Design, in South Korea, and the 2009 Shenzhen Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, City Urbanization, in China—both major city-wide exhibitions devoted to introducing new ideas and experiences to a broad public audience. She has curated a number of exhibitions and experimental design projects across Europe, and was the co-founder and director of The Gopher Hole, an exhibition and project space in London. Educated in architecture at the University of Bath, with an MSc in architectural history from the Bartlett School of Architecture, Ms. Galilee began her career as an editor at Icon magazine, and was a contributing editor to Domus magazine from 2010 to 2013. She is an associate lecturer in the spatial practices program at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. She has written widely on contemporary architecture and design, has been invited to sit on a number of international juries, and is a regular speaker at events, symposia, and conferences.
