Aaron Betsky called visionary architect Lauretta Viciarelli's (1943–2011) watercolor paintings of buildings, light, and water "spaces for the senses, without ground, program, or context" that are "more beautiful than real." Her artwork is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery in Washington, DC, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and has appeared in the Venice and Whitney Biennales and the arresting monograph Not Architecture But Evidence That It Exists.
In this conversation, Viciarelli's colleagues reflect on her work as educator, architect, and artist—from teaching drawing at Columbia University GSAPP and collaborating with Donald Judd in New York and Marfa, Texas, to producing the body of work in "Clear Light: The Architecture of Lauretta Vinciarelli," on display 3/1–5/25 at The City College of New York.
