(Text from BAM) The 2021 BAM Biennial kicks off this new format by inviting designers, artists, and makers of all kinds to interrogate the fields of architecture and urban design.
With the Eastside being connected to Seattle through a light rail extension in 2023, and Amazon’s HQ2 project under construction in downtown Bellevue, Bellevue Arts Museum—itself a signature and important piece of the architecture of King County—seeks to promote a discussion on the essential role of effective and equitable design in what seems to be an ever-expanding urban environment.
The events of 2020 have underlined that Western society’s assumptions around the utility and progression of the city are precisely that: only assumptions. They can be subject to the challenge of a pandemic, the imperatives of long-ignored injustices, or the excessive imposition of state power. The upheavals of recent months have raised important questions about the way we think of architecture and urban design. Should sustainability and density be continually reassessed to respond appropriately to the issues of tomorrow? Are we striving to create places to live and work that aims to be harmonious, equitable, and true?
New work is now featured on our website by the following artists:
MICHAEL KENNA, Hyomon, Study 1, Hokkaido, Japan, 2020
DANIEL CARRILLO, SHO Melotte 15, 2021, archival pigment print, 30 x 40 inches
