Gallery Talk of Tadao Ando: Architect October 6

For Immediate Release

September 26, 2002

Assistant curator Sarah Lees will guide visitors through the exhibition Tadao Ando: Architect at the Clark Art Institute on Sunday, October 6, at 3:00 p.m. The talk is free with gallery admission.

Tadao Ando: Architect is on view at the Clark through April 27. Tadao Ando, the winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize and the recipient of the 2002 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, is one of the most celebrated architects working today. The exhibition features 15 buildings and projects through models, drawings, photographs, and videos in an installation specially designed by the architect. The Clark is the only other venue for Tadao Ando: Architect, which originated at the Saint Louis Art Museum. Ando's sensitivity to landscape and the contemplative nature of his interior spaces led the Institute to select him as architect for its upcoming expansion and campus enhancement.

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Gallery admission is $10 (members, students, and children free). For more information call 413-458-2303 or visit
