Pablo Bronstein at RIBA

PABLO BRONSTEIN

CONSERVATISM, OR THE LONG REIGN OF PSEUDO-GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE

21 September 2017 to 11 February 2018

The third RIBA commission anchored around the practice of
British-Argentinian artist 
Pablo Bronstein, and his exploration of ubiquitous neo-Georgian developments as an exemplar of a genuine British vernacular.

Fifty new drawings of contemporary buildings – constructed during the second half of the twentieth century but in an ostensibly ‘Georgian’ style – were on display for the first time, alongside a selection of rarely-seen historical material from the RIBA Collections.

Chosen by the artist, the archival material situated Bronstein’s drawings in the context of architectural practise through time, revealing long-cherished ideals about social aspiration, urban fabric, identity and representation.

The exhibition was designed by Pablo Bronstein and architecture practice Apparata (Nicholas Lobo Brennan and Astrid Smitham).
