Give and Take

Eschewing the white-cube presentations that typically occur within architectural contexts, Give and Take—a two-week-long installation at the Yale School of Architecture’s North Gallery—is instead a participatory environment. It transforms the North Gallery into a new type of room solely for giving and receiving gifts, positing reciprocity, pleasure, and delight as key aspects of academic and intellectual life. Every School of Architecture student is invited by name to participate, and their engagement shapes the slow unfolding of the room over the course of the installation. By eliding the distinction between curator and visitor, Give and Take quietly challenges the competitive, hierarchical nature of architectural education and offers a counterpoint rooted in feminist praxes and relational aesthetics.
