Event description

Join us for a lecture by Jennifer Newsom and Tom Cartuthers of Dream the Combine.

Jennifer received her Bachelor of Arts from Yale College and her Master of Architecture from Yale University, where she also received the Fermin Ennis Memorial Fellowship and the Anne C.K. Garland award for academic achievement. While at Yale, she organized the two-day symposium Black Boxes: Enigmas of Space and Race held at Yale School of Architecture.

Jennifer is Assistant Professor at Cornell AAP. She was formerly Assistant Professor at University of Minnesota and instructor at Juxtaposition Arts, a youth empowerment and apprenticeship program in North Minneapolis.

Tom received his Bachelor of Arts in drawing and sculpture from Brown University and his Master of Architecture from Yale University. While at Brown, he received the Gilbert Stuart award for best work in the annual juried show.

Tom's early work consists of site-specific sculptures that explore landscape as metaphor and image as space. For four years, he was lead assistant for artist Ursula von Rydingsvard, helping with the construction of over 20 works, including Ogrommna at the North Carolina Museum of Art and Katul Katul, a 1% for the Arts permanent installation at the Queens Family Courthouse, NY. As a licensed architect, he worked alongside the late Charles Gwathmey and at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, developing early concept proposals with formal strategies that integrate context, complex geometry, and material construction. 

Tom is Assistant Professor of the Practice at Cornell AAP. He was formerly co-owner of Jacobsson Carruthers, a metal fabrication shop in NE Minneapolis.
