Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers, “The Section of an Image”
March 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers are architects, artists, and co-founders of Dream The Combine, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dream The Combine’s work consists of large-scale, public art installations exploring metaphor, perceptual uncertainties, and the boundary between real and illusory space. They are intrigued by forgotten places and unpredictable audiences, and consistently seek out spaces on the margins in their work. They are winners of the 2018 Young Architects Program at MoMA PS1 for their installation Hide & Seek. Dream the Combine has exhibited at MoMA and MoMA PS1 in New York, NY; the National Museum of the 21st Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome, Italy; East Haddam, CT; Vancouver BC; and the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Their most recent installation, Lure, was on view in December 2019 at MadArt Studio in Seattle, Washington. Their work has been published widely, including in The New York Times, Metropolis Magazine, Architect Magazine, Architectural Record, Dezeen, The Architects Newspaper, Log, and the Huffington Post.
In addition to Dream The Combine, Jennifer is an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota School of Architecture and Tom is co-owner of Jacobsson Carruthers, a metal fabrication studio in Minneapolis. They are both graduates of the Yale School of Architecture.
