Aaron Betsky

Aaron's participation in Parallax will be a highlight given his clear definition of building vs architecture has proved so instructive to us and in many ways will be a key theme of Parallax.

A prolific writer and editor with a dozen books and articles to his credit, Betsky is a former professor with the School of Architecture and Interior Design (now DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati and continues teaching and lecturing in the United States and abroad. His leadership of major institutions in the world of art and architecture includes serving as the Director of the Netherlands Architecture Institute in Rotterdam from 2001 to 2006 and as the Curator of Architecture and Design of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from 1995-2001. In 1998 Betsky served on the architect selection committee for the internationally acclaimed new building of the Contemporary Arts Center.  In August 2006 he was appointed Director of the Cincinnati Art Museum.  In 2008 Betsky was the Director of the 11th Exhibition of the Venice Architecture Biennale.
