A part of West Coast Modern Week, the Inaugural Barry Downs Architecture Lecture will feature Dr. Michael Prokopow.
A cultural historian and curator, Dr. Prokopow has written widely about material life, aesthetics and the work of decolonizing the study of modernism, and he is currently working on a project on middle class taste in North America between 1940 and 1975. Past curatorial projects have included multiple exhibitions and installations, such as True Nordic: How Scandinavia Influenced Design in Canada, and the Design Exchange, Canada’s only museum of 20th-century industrial design. In 2022, Dr. Prokopow will be releasing his new book, Responses: Recent and Contemporary Domestic Architecture in British Columbia.
