At a time when digital media makes everyone a critic and a curator, Mimi Zeiger discusses how those titles dovetail in her work. She’ll present her approach to several projects, including Dimensions of Citizenship, the upcoming 2018 U.S. Pavilion for the Venice Architecture Biennale, Tu Casa es mi Casa, and Now, There: Scenes from the Post Geographic City. She’ll investigate how collaboration, structure, research, and critique shape exhibition making.

Mimi Zeiger is a Los Angeles-based critic, editor, and curator. Her work is situated at the intersection architecture and media cultures. She has written for The New York TimesDomusArchitectural ReviewArchitect, where she is a contributing editor, and is an opinion columnist for Dezeen. Zeiger is the 2015 recipient of the Bradford Williams Medal for excellence in writing about landscape architecture. She has curated, contributed to, and collaborated on projects that have been shown at the Art Institute Chicago, 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale, the New Museum, Storefront for Art and Architecture, pinkcomma gallery, and the AA School. She co-curated Now, There: Scenes from the Post-Geographic City, which received the Bronze Dragon award at the 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture, Shenzhen. Currently, she is one of the curators of the U.S. Pavilion for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
