The CCA is launching A Section of Now with a three-part event on Saturday
On Saturday, Nov. 13, the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) is launching a new exhibition, A Section of Now: Social Norms and Rituals as Sites for Architectural Intervention. The show examines our society with a focus on “expanding notions of family, property ownership, activism, work, technology and life cycles,” and features TV series, contemporary photography, architectural research and designed objects.

In lieu of a traditional CCA vernissage event (one talk followed by a wine & cheese), the CCA is inviting the public to choose one of three time slots, each featuring different pairs of speakers who will discuss the exhibition.

At 2 p.m., exhibition designers Sam Chermayeff and Betsy Clifton will speak with researcher Hannah Strothman. At 4 p.m., artist Jamie Diamond will be in conversation with CCA curator of photography and new media Hester Keijser. At 6 p.m., Takumi Akin, Wesley Chou and Jonathan Michael Gacnik of Folder Studio will speak with exhibition curator Giovanna Borasi, who is also the CCA director.
