The Graham Foundation reflects upon the passing of architect and theorist Anne Tyng. In 1965, Tyng was one of the first women to receive a fellowship from the Graham Foundation for her project Anatomy of Form: The Divine Proportion in the Platonic Solids. Last spring the Graham Foundation, in conjunction with the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, was pleased to present the exhibition Anne Tyng: Inhabiting Geometry. The catalog for this exhibition, co-published by the ICA and the Graham Foundation, is forthcoming. Tyng was also interviewed this past summer by contemporary art curator, critic and historian Hans Ulrich Obrist and architect Bjarke Ingels as part of a Graham Foundation grant to the Institute of the 21st Century.
