Scaffolding is both a noun and a verb, object and action. Beyond its role in the construction industry, it is frequently used to erect temporary theaters, create set designs, and support various modes of performance. This lecture explores scaffolding as a conceptual and technical element, as well as its relationship to bodies and space.

This program is presented as part of Performa 2017 and is a program of Scaffolding on view at the Center for Architecture through January 18, 2018.
