Blueprint / Blauwdruk at KAdE
Johnston Marklee participated in an exhibition curated by Sebastiaan Bremer and Florian Idenburg & Jing Liu of SO-IL Architects. The show is based on the exhibition Blueprint (1998) curated by Sebastiaan Bremer and Pieter Woudt, in which a series of artists works were united by the constraint of the color blue. The present exhibition titled, Blueprint / Blauwdruk, traces this lineage by posing a group of architects to look back at their practice and identify one fundamental work. Blueprint / Blauwdruk opens at the Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort, NL on Monday February 16th and runs until March 23rd 2014.
