Join us for a conversation with architect Allan Shulman, photographer Robin Hill and curator and conceptual artist Nuria Richards moderated by MBUS Director, John Stuart.
Allan Shulman FAIA, LEED AP is Director of Graduate Programs in Architecture and Associate Professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture. Allan is a practicing architect, author, editor and curator. His research focuses on themes of modernism, tropicality and urbanism.
Photographic artist Robin Hill is a Creative Soul with Eclectic Ideas. “Energy in form” are the words that best describe the collected work created by Robin Hill. An award-winning Miami and New York-based art photographer, Hill invokes his observation and intuition as he straddles the boundaries between art, architecture, design, and spirit by using his medium of choice; photography.
In 2019 Nuria founded Clandestina, an appointment only gallery at her apartment in Midtown Miami, in a socializing move to build a contemporary art program; a curated community of outsiders that thrive on academic technique as much as coding, curating the views of unexplored feminists, and buffering complex proposals with origin in the Bauhaus residency (to mention one) in a domestic environment. On the business side Clandestina is making big bids for breaking ground, either presenting a solo-female lead booth in January 2020 for an art fair in San Francisco with pieces of museum complexity level, or by pledging to change the distribution of sales revenue mostly based on traditional gallery/artists structures.
John Stuart, AIA, Associate Dean for Cultural and Community Engagement, Executive Director of Miami Beach Urban Studios, and Professor, is a practicing registered architect in the State of Florida. He is also an architectural historian and a visual artist developing collaborative research projects on complexity, community, identity, technology, the environment and public space with funding from Van Alen Institute, The National Endowment for the Arts, The National Science Foundation, The National Endowment for the Humanities, and The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
