Possible Mediums Exhibition Wins Graham Foundation Grant


A traveling exhibition featuring 16 new design pieces from the architects and designers who took part in the Possible Mediums conference held at the Knowlton School last February has received a grant from the Graham Foundation. The Possible Mediums Project is a series of events showcasing design investigations based in speculative architectural mediums. The exhibition will showcase this work to a larger audience and provide a backdrop for future events, workshops, and discussions. The new Possible Mediums Exhibition will open at the Taubman College Liberty Research Annex Gallery at the University of Michigan in January 2014.

In addition to supporting the development of new designs, the grant also will assist with general exhibition costs and the production of an exhibition catalog. Knowlton School Assistant Professor of Architecture Kristy Balliet is acting as one of four Curators and is designing a piece for the exhibition. Assistant Professor of Architecture Justin Diles will participate as a designer within the Excessive Volumes group. 

The Possible Mediums conference, which took place in Knowlton Hall, February 7- 10, 2013, brought together 18 designers, and 120 students from the event’s four co-host schools: The Ohio State University’s Knowlton School of Architecture, the University of Illinois at Chicago’s School of Architecture, University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning, and University of Kentucky’s College of Design. To learn more about last February’s conference, and view photos and video taken at the event, see the Knowlton School website.
