Denise Scott Brown: Wayward Eye – Exhibition Tour


Join us for a tour of ‘Wayward Eye’ an exhibition of photography by legendary architect-planner and theorist Denise Scott Brown, shown at Betts Project Gallery. The tour will be led by Marie Coulon, Director and Founder of Betts Project.

‘I’m not a photographer. I shoot for architecture — if there’s art here it’s a byproduct.

Yet the images stand alone. Judge what you see.’

—Denise Scott Brown

Taken between 1956 and 1966, these photographs reveal Scott Brown’s formative explorations into urban systems, Pop Art, and the complexity of the American vernacular — interests that she and partner Robert Venturi would later develop in the pivotal Learning from Las Vegas. The photographs offer a glimpse into the social transformations of the 1960s as seen through the wayward eye of one of architecture’s most influential practitioners.

Exhibition is open until Saturday, 20 October 2018


Only open to AA Members.
