Mary Woods publishes "Women on Top: Gender and Photographing New York City Skyscrapers"
Architecture professor Mary Woods has published “Women on Top: Gender and Photographing New York City Skyscrapers” in a special edition of the Journal of Architecture, curated by Alan Marcus of the University of Aberdeen. Woods also gave a paper on Bollywood cinema and Mumbai's Art Deco picture palaces at the International DOCOMOMO conference in Ankara, Turkey, in September. Locally, Woods is organizing a conference on Gordon Matta-Clark (B.Arch. ’68) to occur in late March in conjunction with her spring 2007 graduate seminar on Matta-Clark and friends. Invited speakers include Jane Crawford, documentary filmmaker and Matta-Clark's collaborator and widow; Gwendolyn Owen, curator of the Matta-Clark Archive at the Canadian Centre for Architecture; and Kent Hubbell (B.Arch. ’69), Cornell’s dean of students and a classmate of Matta-Clark’s. Seminar students are curating a study exhibition on the 1969 Earth Art exhibit at Cornell (where Matta-Clark worked with such artists as Robert Smithson and Dennis Oppenheim) from the collections of the Johnson Museum.
