Take a look at the List Center’s exhibitions from a new perspective. Join Elizabeth Saari Browne of the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture and Art department at MIT to discover more about Allison Katz: Diary w/o Dates.

The talk will focus on the French Republican Calendar that was used from 1793-1806, considering how, in addition to restructuring time, it was conceived to reimagine history.
