Monday Night Program

Catie Newell

Monday, March 20 @ 7pm

Catie Newell is the founding principal of the art and architecture practice Alibi Studio and the Director of the Master of Science in Architectural Design and Research program with concentrations in Material Systems and Digital Technologies at the University of Michigan.

Using site-specific installations and photography as the main mediums of her practice, Newell re-presents existing spaces through an obscuring of the relevant embedded materials. She deploys material manipulation, illumination and darkness, and implications of occupation to intervene in a space where something unanticipated has already happened. The materials and their tectonic are chosen for their relevance to the site and the history they infuse.
