About 13.3%

Just over thirteen percent of architects are women, according to the American Institute of Architects.

The exhibition 13.3%… borrows from the conceptual structure of curator Lucy Lippard’s landmark 1973 exhibition of conceptual art, c. 7,500, in which each work on display fit into a standard manila envelope. Lippard’s exhibition contested the belief that there were no women making conceptual art at the time — and she did so by mailing evidence of this work directly to the gallery for display. Nearly forty years later, 13.3%… provides a space and form in which to consider the contributions and visibility of today’s practicing female architects.

Responses in any form (drawings, writing, videos, artifacts, etc.) will be exhibited in The Project Space at WUHo on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California, from December 2010 to January 2011.

Submission materials and entry form must arrive to the gallery in a standard manila envelope (9 by 12-inch), postmarked by November 20, 2010.

Entry form and additional information are available here:
