A Book Talk and Signing

Santa Monica, CA 90401

Join author and architect Joe Day in conversation with LA Forum board member and critic Mimi Zeiger.

A 50-year survey of groundbreaking designs for exhibition and detention, Corrections & Collections: Architectures for Art and Crime explores America’s many new environments for the beautiful and the damned.

“Prison within a museum; museum within a prison. The curation of men, the incarceration of art. Fruitful or just clever mirror images? Joe Day takes us farther up river with such inverted analogies than most of us would have conceived possible.”
—Mike Davis, from the Foreword

Joe Day designs and writes in L.A., where he leads deegan-day design and teaches at SCI-Arc. In addition to Corrections & Collections, Day recently added a foreword to the new UC Press edition of Reyner Banham’s Los Angeles: Architecture of the Four Ecologies.
