EVENT DESCRIPTION

MITArchA (MIT Architecture Alumni) and Oscilloscope Labs present the Cambridge premiere of The Proposal, a Film by Jill Magid SMVisS '00. Join us at Landmark Theatres, Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge on June 27, for an exclusive viewing of the film. With remarks by MIT Department of Architecture Professor Caroline Jones.

Known as “the artist among architects”, Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his work was locked away in a Swiss bunker, hidden from the world’s view. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, boundary redefining artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself – a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.
