Cat Tyc and Lucy Ives have been invited to read literary works that speak to the confluence of art, architecture, and social regulation. This is the second installment of events intended to flesh out aspects of the artworks on exhibit.

The reading will be followed by a Q&A-guided discussion that will expand upon the respective practices of the featured readers, as well as the interrelationship of architecture and art in Daniel Turner's work.
