A new photographic exhibit entitled: "Notes on Asphalt, a Mobile and Precarious America, 1950-1990" will be on display at the Pavillon Populaire, Montpellier, France from February 8 through April 16th.
This is the first exhibition of an American cycle that will be presented by the Pavillon Populaire during the year 2017. Notes sur l'asphalte, une Amérique mobile et précaire, 1950-1990 (Notes on asphalt, a mobile and precarious America, 1950-1990) reveals the work of six researchers: Donald Appleyard (Professor Emeritus Urban Design), John Brinckerhoff Jackson (Adjunct Professor), Allan Jacobs (Professor Emeritus City & Regional Planning), Chester Liebs, Richard Longstreth ('77 Ph.D Architecture) and David Lowenthal (('50, M.A, Geography). Each of them has immortalized the landscapes of both the urban and the rural areas of the United States. In addition to J. B. Jackson, a tutelary and atypical figure whose work influences the art world, all enjoy an important scientific reputation in the fields of architecture, town planning and landscape. The exhibition of the Pavillon Populaire presents almost exclusively 200 photographs which until now have only been shown in the framework of scientific publications or university courses.
Opening hours: 10 am - 1 pm and 2 pm - 6 pm from Tuesday to Sunday. Free entry.
