74 Things

Banvard Gallery
January 6, 2020 - 12:30pm to February 6, 2020 - 5:00pm

The Knowlton Hall Banvard Gallery will host 74 Things  from January 6 to February 6, 2019. As part of the exhibition, Neyran Turan of NEMESTUDIO will give a Loose Talk at the Big Stairs on January 17.


74 Things presents the recent work of San Francisco based architectural office NEMESTUDIO. There are seventy-four things in this exhibition: thirty-three drawings, fourteen podiums, eight models, six videos, two backdrops, two photoshoot lights, two dollies, one ladder, one water-bottle, and five headphones. The drawings are presented through a backdrop; the models are in a photoshoot; and the exhibition itself is a construction site.

Through its flipping of the foreground and the background in its presentation, 74 Things is a space of architecture’s own making, assembly, and unmaking. On the one hand, it disassembles the making of architecture and reassembles it as a staged event. On the other, while exhausting specific procedures of architectural work and labor, it presents architecture somewhere in between representation and construction.


NEMESTUDIO exhibition design team: Neyran Turan, Michelle Deng, Ian Erickson, Ryan Shin.

Ohio State installation team: Sandhya Kochar (Gallery Chair), Sangyuhn Suh (Gallery Assistant), Nour Al-Qarra, Yossi Schuck.


The Banvard Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Gallery is located on the first floor of Knowlton Hall on the campus of The Ohio State University.
