MICHAEL DUDLEY ON JUDITH CHAFEE
May 28, 7 PM
From the macho architectural hotbed of the American East Coast of the 60's and 70', Judith Chafee returned to her home of Tucson, Arizona to produce a number of enigmatic desert homes. Certainly a critical regionalist, but her works transcend this classification with their humorous references and seemingly free associations. Could Chafee be considered a missing link between the modernism she was trained in and the post-modernism that later stole the architectural show? What secrets still lie in the Sonoran desert?
Michael Dudley is a lecturer at the Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm. His research interests are Judith Chafee and mobile homes.
