Art Lecture - University of Manitoba - Terri Fuglem

In the Borderlands of Art:
...the future terrain
of architecture & ceramics

Thursday, March 25 | 6 pm Ceramics Studio

Architecture, like ceramics, occupies a place between art and craft, ornament and function. Historically, the two disciplines are fundamentally similar, accommodating the most sacred rituals and the humblest of human needs.

Indeed, many buildings and their parts —and for a very long time—are made of ceramics. This lecture will explore the mutually beneficial relationships, both past and future, between the ceramic arts and architecture.

Professor Terri Fuglem is currently an Associate Professor in the University of Manitoba Department of Architecture. She received a BArch (five-year professional degree) in Architecture at Carleton University and an MArch in the History and Theory of Architecture at McGill University. Professor Fuglem has practiced in Ontario, Qu├ębec and London, England, and taught architecture at Carleton University, Dalhousie University, and the University of Manitoba. Her research interests include the history of modern architecture in Canada, the relationships between form and materiality, and the effects of the global economy on local systems of trade and exchange, and particularly with the effects of regional production on architecture.

Terri Fuglem’s lecture is part of an exchange between Ceramics and Architecture.
There is no cost to attend this event – everyone is welcome.
