Anthony Titus, Ruptures and Reconciliations, Exhibition Installation Shot, 2022

This event will be conducted in-person in room 315F and through Zoom. 

For Zoom attendance, please register in advance here.

The lecture will focus upon the structure of Anthony Titus' transdisciplinary practice of art and architecture. Spanning a selection of exhibitions, projects, and teaching pedagogy from the past decade, the lecture will emphasize the processes and procedures involved in making the work as well as the works themselves. The lecture will also focus on the exploration and discovery of new possibilities between the spaces of architecture, sculpture and painting. The conversation and exchange between these disciplines serves as a rich space of opportunity to enhance and expand our current understanding of space, form, color, and structure as participants in a larger cultural landscape. 

Anthony Titus Studio is an interdisciplinary practice that focuses on the relationships between contemporary art and architecture. Since its inception in 2005, the studio has produced numerous installations, objects as well as solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. The practice has consistently explored the uniquely constructed spaces between architecture, painting and sculpture. He received his undergraduate degree in architecture from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and a graduate degree in fine art from the University of Chicago. 

Parallel to his independent practice, Titus has taught and lectured about architecture and art since 2002 and is currently a tenured professor of architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. In 2022 he was invited by the Harvard University Graduate School of Design to deliver the annual John Hejduk Soundings Lecture. Titus is the recipient of a 2013 research grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. The research project is titled Twisted Siblings: Relationships Between Contemporary Painting and Digital Architecture. His work has been exhibited and published widely and includes a recent solo exhibition titled Ruptures and Reconciliations at ‘T' Space in Rhinebeck, NY. In 2022 Titus was granted an award in architecture by The American Academy of Arts and Letters.  

The in-person event is open to current Cooper Union Students, Faculty, and Staff only. The Public may attend this event through Zoom.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
