On the occasion of Phyllis Lambert’s ninetieth birthday, this exhibition offers an autobiographical glimpse into the evolution of the CCA founder’s ideas and her work as an architect, activist, editor, and curator. Highlighting her deep commitment to the city and to intellectual research, the display of archival material from the CCA’s collection, institutional archives, and Phyllis Lambert archives reveals the consistent radicalism of her life.
Curated by Phyllis Lambert. Graphic design: Sean Yendrys, New York/Montreal.
