Torkwase Dyson, Robert Gwathmey Chair in Architecture and Art | Exhibition: I Can Drink the Distance

I Can Drink the Distance, a solo exhibition by artist Torkwase Dyson, the Spring 2019 Robert Gwathmey Chair in Architecture and Art at The Cooper Union, considers how the body unifies, balances, and arranges itself to move through built environments. Attuned to the shape patterns of industry-from the history of global trade to contemporary colonization and extraction-Dyson thinks through the various ways humans oppose the violence of these synergistic systems with methods of improvisation and spatial planning.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
