Cedric Price was one of Britain’s most provocative and visionary architects, whose projects would push against traditional architectural boundaries and delight in questioning the impact of time and space on the built environment. Since the 1960s Price put his focus on time-based interventions, rather than finished buildings that has earned him the admiration of both contemporary architects and artists.
Cedric Price: Drawings exhibition included a presentation of ‘Magnet’, a series of short-life structures developed through the 1990s, situated in walkways, elevators, arcades and piers. Intended to stimulate new patters of movement in the city, this radical project was documented through a series of drawings and prints, some unseen before. Other works addressed his ideas about museums as places for dialogue and cultural production across disciplines.
The exhibition was selected by Hans Ulrich Obrist and presented at TheSpace@inIVA from 17 January – 23 February 2001.
