Politics of Small Places
Paul Noble + Patrick Geddes
Through October 6, 2018
Cooper Gallery, University of Dundee, Scotland
Offering paradoxical visions of the cornucopia of concrete, glass, and steel that straddles the world, Politics of Small Places forges a unique dialogue between Paul Noble and pioneering Scottish urban planner Patrick Geddes. The exhibition comprises Noble’s Nest (2004) and Eggface (2014) accompanied by a suite of drawings from which Nest is derived. Alongside Noble’s works are nine original diagrams selected from the Geddes Archive Collections at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.
