Architecture for Art: Where Things Intersect

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Architecture for Art, or A for A, a gallery that opened this past winter in Hillsdale, is, as its name implies, dedicated to exploring the nexus between two disciplines. Fittingly, for a concern that takes siting and points of convergence seriously, it is situated at an important crossroad for this region, where the artery that unites Dutchess and Columbia Counties (Route 22) intersects with the one that links Columbia and Berkshire (Route 23).  Or as it’s irrepressible owner, Liane Torre describes her gallery’s location, “midway between Dia:Beacon and MASS MoCA.”  The current show features Torre’s own geometric color field paintings; Egg City, the artwork of architect Andrew MacNair; and 9x9x99, a work by Guy Nouri, an artist with architectural inclinations, whose piece is as much about the way it occupies its space as about the paintings themselves.  A for A even has its own publication, Splash.
