Keynote Address: Alice T. Friedman
Alice Friedman is an art historian and the Grace Slack McNeil Professor of the History of American Art and Co-Director of the Architecture Program at Wellesley College. She is also a curator, art critic, and author of Women and the Making of the Modern House. Her research and teaching focuses on modern architecture and the history of design in the United States. She is particularly interested in mid-century modern architecture, in the culture of the United States in the years following World War II. Broadly speaking, she is concerned with the social and cultural history of architecture, with an emphasis on issues of gender, patronage, and the history of taste, both in the United States and in Europe, 1750 to the present.
In her lecture, Friedman will shed light on Wright's Susan Lawrence Dana house, emphasizing the contributions of Marion Mahoney, Eleanor Raymond’s house for Natalie Hammond, and the Farnsworth House with a nod to Tugendhat and Lily Reich.
Thematic Video - A Woman's Place: Clients, Architects, Promoters
Expert presenter: Natalie Dubois
Natalie Dubois is curator of applied art and design at the Centraal Museum Utrecht. Among other things, she is responsible for the Rietveld Schröder House and two other Rietveld houses that are being managed by the museum. Natalie studied art history at the UvA (Amsterdam) and NYU (New York) and museology at the Reinwardt Academy (Amsterdam).
This episode is about the influence that women had on three significant houses in The Netherlands: a female architect and two clients with very particular ideas about how we should live: Hélène Kröller-Müller as a client, Truus Schröder-Schräder as co-designer and Lotte Stam-Beese as architect. The houses in which they were involved will be featured in this video:
- Country Residence/Museum Jachthuis Sint Hubertus, H.P. Berlage, client Hélène Kröller-Müller, 1920
- Rietveld Schröder House, Gerrit Rietveld, client/co-designer Truus Schröder-Schräder, 1924
- Museum House Polman, architect Lotte Stam-Beese, 1956
