Architecture + Design Film Series – The Proposal

THE PROPOSAL | January 22, 2020
Directed by Jill Magid
2018, USA, 86 Minutes

Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his design work including drawings, models, and letters were privately purchased and have been concealed from the world’s view ever since. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself, an act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.

Check out the story behind the film poster design.

The essence of design lies in its profound ability to affect how we think about and experience the world.

The Architecture & Design Film Series engages, provokes and inspires the community by exploring the impact and importance of design and beauty in our lives.

We invite you to join us for thoughtful discussion and light refreshments in hopes that this creative gathering will broaden awareness, foster connections, spark new ideas, and ultimately build momentum towards positive action.

Free screenings once a month. Wednesday evenings through April 2019.

AIGA Vermont is a proud sponsor.
