Scope and content
Professor Richards has, from the beginning of his career, been actively involved in exhibitions, both those to which he contributed items and those which he either curated and/or designed. Both categories are included and intermingled here. Some of the exhibitions listed in Professor Richards’ curriculum vitae are not included in this series.
The files contain correspondence, memoranda, notes, sketches and formal drawings, programmes, photographs, and press coverage. The exhibitions in B2007-0011 most thoroughly documented are ‘The work of John Hejduk’, ‘O Kanada’ (1982-1983), ‘Entre espacos’, ‘Waterworks, ‘Buildings and gardens’, the Venice Biennales, and ‘E-12’.
Within B2019-0009, material includes Richards’ exhibitions on Frank Gehry (see Series 16 for Richards’ writing for the Geary exhibition at the AGO), curatorial work for the Eric Arthur Gallery, particularly for the “Foster” exhibition, and his Maple Leaf Gardens exhibit.
