October 25, 2011
The first major exhibition of the work of James Frazer Stirling, architect, educator and Pritzker Prize winner, opened at the Staatsgalarie Stuttgart on 1 October 2011. The exhibition, James Frazier Stirling: Notes from the Archive - Crisis of Modernism, was curated by Anthony Vidler, Dean of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, and co-organized by the Canadian Center for Architecture and the Yale Center for British Art. It includes over three hundred original drawings, models and photographs as well as other archival materials exhibited for the first time. The exhibition was first presented at the Yale Center for British Art in Fall 2010, traveled to the Tate Gallery in London and will continue on to the Canadian Center for Architecture after Stuttgart. The exhibition is accompanied by a lavishly illustrated catalog authored by Dean Vidler and published by the Canadian Center for Architecture and the Yale Center for British Art in association with Yale University Press.
