Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association
at the Arthur A. Houghton Gallery in The Cooper Union is an exhibition of drawings and prints that explore imaginary space and architectural representations, departing from conventions or pragmatic restraints. The works were a product of the special ambience created at the Architectural Association School of Architecture during the 1970's and 1980's in the UK. The resulting radical image making seems to both explode and expand notions of architectural drawing. Offset lithography, color screen print, collage, photostats, thermal prints, etching and other printing techniques were tried on untraditional papers and plastics. On view to November 25, 2015. The gallery is in the The Cooper Union building at 7 East 7th Street, second floor.
