What does architecture look like? Although man-made structures surround us, we generally only notice them in passing, as background to our daily lives. In contrast, Window to Wall: Art from Architecture presents architecture as seen through the attentive eyes of artists. Featuring architectural sites both real and imagined, their works reveal the formal, metaphorical, and social dimensions of our built environment.
Drawn from the Albright-Knox’s collection, Window to Wall includes works by twentieth-century icons long associated with architecture—such as Charles Sheeler and Edward Hopper—alongside recent acquisitions by contemporary artists, illuminating art’s enduring and complex relationship with its sister discipline.
