Strauss Gallery

A Temporary Museum of Ideas in the Making

January 9 - April 29, 2018 - Reception: January 9, 5.45pm, Strauss Gallery, Hopkins Center, Dartmouth College.

A Temporary Museum of Ideas in the Making is an exhibition of 36 architectural models by Dartmouth students. The architectural model is the ultimate tool to explore, showcase, and test an idea from its concept to realization. It is a step before the building, or even the building itself. It is tangible, real. But it is also a seductive device that allows you to insert a miniature world, observe its habits, and imagine the new possibilities.

About

Public space has been vital to people and cities since ancient times as the designated space for dialogue, participation, collective activities, interaction and exchange, and essentially democracy. However, due to various social, political, and economic complexities, as well as technological advancements, public space has gradually transformed to less open, less democratic, less comfortable, less enjoyable, less “ours.” From one hand, codes, policies, and regulations reinforce limited use and accessibility, uncomfortable surfaces and furniture, and ubiquitous surveillance. From the other hand, the web culture has absorbed much of the dialogue and participatory practices that now occur more often in the digital realm. Public space is essentially not so “public” and not so “spatial.”

Allan Houser: A Centennial Exhibition


Born on June 30, 1914, Allan C. Haozous was to become known as Allan Houser, one of the 20th Century's most important artists. Allan's parents, Sam and Blossom Haozous were members of the Chiricahua Apache tribe who were held as prisoners of war for 27 years. Allan's father was with the small band of Warm Springs Chiricahuas when their leader, Geronimo, surrendered to the U.S. Army in 1886 in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua. Allan Houser's father, Sam Haozous, and Geronimo were first cousins. Their fathers, Goohah-hleenah and Taklishim, were both sons of the Bedonkohe Apache chief Mahko by his first wife. In retribution for the Warm Springs Bands' refusal to leave their lands in New Mexico and relocate to a reservation in Arizona, 1200 Chiricahuas were sent by cattle-car train to prisons in Florida.
