Open Source Salon with Vicky Richardson
architecture – pavilions – community

Wed 24 May 2017, 6.30 pm

Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in collaboration with the Roth Bar & Grill, is delighted to present ‘Open Source Salon’ – a discussion group for like-minded creatives and enthusiasts who meet monthly to exchange ideas, hear special guest speakers, and enjoy local food and drink. Each salon consists of a specially invited speaker who will share their unique knowledge and experience on one of the four key themes at the heart of Hauser & Wirth Somerset – Art, Architecture, Landscape, Food.

Join us on Wednesday 24 May for an evening of discussion in the Radić Pavilion with writer and curator Vicky Richardson. Richardson specialises in architecture and design, and in 2016 was the commissioner for the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale. For Open Source Salon, Richardson will examine the role and influence of the contemporary pavilion, questioning whether these structures hold a societal function. Her presentation will touch upon the Venice Biennale pavilions, the Architectural Association’s pavilion projects and the Serpentine Pavilion Programme, to name a few.
