Daniel Urban Kiley Lecture: Julie Bargmann, “Modesty”


Thursday, March 4, 2021, 7:30pm to 9:00pm


Harvard Graduate School of Design—Online

Toxic Beauty. Troubled Allure. Fallow Fairness. Not Vacant, Open. Not Abandoned, Changing.

D.I.R.T. cultivates a perverse attraction and an unapologetic approach to wrecked landscapes.

Not Restorative, Regenerative.

The work holds back. It doesn’t make everything perfectly okay. The work listens. It hears them above trying to make sense, below the ground producing heritage. The work hurts. It flips preconceptions of stuck minds. The work is messy. It’s all about finding. The work emerges.

It doesn’t descend. The work leaves. It lets you in.

Modesty is a Manifesto calling for restraint when we don’t know what’s next.
