Rare Item, an exhibition of work by Princeton University School of Architecture alum Miles Gertler, opened at Toronto's Corkin Gallery. The show will be on view through July 21, 2017. In this solo exhibition, Gertler produces a taxonomic index of architectural technologies. In digital prints and resin casts, objects and non-objects populate scenarios toward the production of post-human landscapes of pleasure.
