Guided Tour with artist Alexander Pilis

In connection with the exhibition Olafur Eliasson: Multiple shadow house, the public is invited to a guided tour in company of artist Alexander Pilis on Thursday, June 29 at 6 p.m. (in English).

Alexander Pilis was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and currently lives and works in Montreal and São Paulo. He is an un-disciplined architectural investigator, artist and curator working under the aegis of Architecture Parallax – a methodology that displaces sight as the singular verification of reality. Furthermore, Pilis instigates a multi-media project exploring issues and questions raised by “the blind architect” as a critique of the modernization of vision and the collapse of the depth of field. In addition, Pilis founded and directed Archimemoria and Architecture Parallax, Non-Profit Architecture, Art, Perception, Exhibiting & Publishing Organizations. He is currently part-time professor in the MFA department at Concordia University and was previously Director of the Global Architecture São Paulo Program in the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto. Pilis has exhibited, taught, lectured, delivered workshops and published internationally. He is represented by Galeria Virgilio in São Paulo, Brazil.
