Space, Time, and Architecture 

When: Jan. 13-Feb. 26 2012

In 1941, the scholar and critic Sigfried Giedion wrote Space, Time, and Architecture, a now-classic multidisciplinary analysis of architecture and city planning. Luca Antonucci and Cybele Lyle see architectural history and space as, respectively, a dead zone and a "place of permissions." Antonucci obscures the book's 881 pages, transforming it into "an object that represents the knowledge it fails to hold onto" -- and perhaps meaningless to him, a failed attempt to define space. (Doesn't all sculpture or architecture supposedly do that, with varying degrees of success?) Lyle creates handsome digital collages similar to architectural or theatrical renderings; she seems them as "queer, safe, architectural, and emotional," forming a "mirror of reality in which all forms of intimacy are allowed to be visible." Christina Linden will moderate a cookies and beer artist talk at the gallery on February 26 from 2-4pm. Space, Time, and Architecture runs through February 26 at Royal NoneSuch Gallery (4231 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). 415-652-1623 or
