THE MODERN MODULAR
Joseph Tanney Lecture & Booksigning
Tuesday, November 26
Trespa Design Center
62 Greene Street, New York
Joseph Tanney, principal and founder of Resolution: 4 Architecture (RES 4), will present a program focusing on THE MODERN MODULAR, a systematic methodology of design that leverages existing methods of prefabrication for residential construction. These efforts offer an option of ‘Mass Customization’ to the single-family housing market, thereby potentially transforming the sub-urban fabric of the American domestic landscape. This fall, Princeton Architectural Press published Modern Modular: The Prefab Houses of Resolution: 4 Architecture by Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz. The book will be on sale at the event.
In 2003, RES4 won an International Competition for a modern prefabricated home, The Dwell Home. It has been noted by the Washington Post as the “highest profile modern prefabricated home in America”, and is considered the “Holy Grail” for modern prefab enthusiasts by the Wall Street Journal.
Speaker: Joseph Tanneyfounded Resolution: 4 Architecture with Robert Luntz in New York in 1990. Since its inception, their ten-person office has been internationally published and highly acclaimed, completing projects in the residential, commercial, and public realms. Prior to starting his own practice, Tanney was a student and an employee of both Charles Gwathmey and Peter Eisenman. Tanney has lectured throughout the US, and his firm’s work has been exhibited in museums including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Hammer Museum in Los Angles, and MOMA in New York.

Opening reception: Thursday, November 14, 7–9 pm
7–8 pm: conversation about the book with author Adam Lerner and Cabinet magazine’s Sina Najaf
8–9 pm: reception and book signing
Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn, NY
In 2010, Adam Lerner, the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, did something unheard of in the museum world: he mounted a large exhibition of paintings without first knowing whether they were real or fake. Painted in the Suprematist and Constructivist styles of early twentieth-century Russian avant-garde masters, the 181 canvases had been acquired by amateur collectors Ron and Roger Pollard from a mysterious seller in Germany. The man, who they met on eBay, claimed that the paintings had been found in an abandoned shipping container held in German customs since the 1980s.
This event—which celebrates the publication of From Russia with Doubt, (Princeton Architectural Press)—Lerner’s book on the making of the exhibition and the stakes involved with showing unauthenticated artworks also marks the opening of an exhibition co-organized by MCA Denver and Cabinet featuring a selection of paintings from the Pollards’ collection. The evening will include a discussion with Lerner about the value of inauthenticity and the benefits of not knowing within the modern cultural institution.
Exhibition dates: November 18–29, 2013 (closed Thanksgiving)
Gallery hours: Monday to Saturday, 12–6 pm
Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)
Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver and Cabinet
