GOD & CO: François Dallegret Beyond the Bubble.
JOHN W. FORD: House Not a Home
This exhibition is a retrospective of French-born (1937) Canadian artist, designer and architectural designer François Dallegret. Trained as an architect at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, François Dallegret's work since the late 1950s has been a critical yet indulgent commentary on architecture and its increasing appropriation by machines and apparatuses. In Dallegret's world, imaginary machines encompass every area and form of life: alongside cars and rockets there are interactive dictating machines, art, cooking and literature-generating machines, and machines for living, exhibiting or dancing.
A catalogue, produced by the Architectural Association, is available.
