Terence Gower: Havana Case Study
September 12 - December 15, 2017
Terence Gower's Havana Case Study is the second in a series of installations that use American diplomatic architecture as a lens through which to analyze US international relations (the first, from 2012, focused on Baghdad). The installation is based on extensive research in Havana and in US archives. Through creative engagement with this archival source material, Gower examines the embassy program’s attempt to represent the aspirations of a government and its foreign policy through architecture, and how both the function and meaning of embassy buildings have been altered by the US and host governments over time.
