House / Museum #3 | Conversation Series

HxM #3

Housemuseum Galleries
217 Cotham Rd
Kew, 3101

A conversation on synergies, divergences, metaphors and other things... Exploring the typologies of 'house' and 'museum.'

Speakers: Giovanna Borasi (via Skype) X Hélène Frichot
Giovanna Borasi | Chief Curator of Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA)
Hélène Frichot | Professor of Architecture at Melbourne School of Design, Melbourne

The ‘house museum’, even if historically defined, still proves a fundamentally contemporary and elusive subject.

Uniting theorists, curators, architects, and historians from around the globe in one-on-one conversations, the House | Museum Conversation Series at the Lyon Housemuseum Galleries aims to clear intellectual space for ranging discussion on the House, the Museum, and the House Museum. By simultaneously traversing these cultural and typological junctions, openings for (re)thinking origins, developments, preoccupations, perversions, failures, futures, and other House Museum things may appear.

House | Museum Conversation Series is curated by Scott Woods @harryhumboldt (Academic Fellow in Architecture at MSD) and is a partnership between Melbourne School of Design and Lyon Housemuseum Galleries.
