HOT CORN involves a whirlwind tour through the controversial history of corn in the architectural landscape. In a stern public lecture and gallery exhibit, two researchers will present their findings, drawing bold connections between the minutiae of their archaeo-argrico-logical findings in a lecture spanning decades, continents, and disciplines. No mere grain, corn begins in the earliest domiciles, lurking in the background, resurfacing in the occult-mystic-Masonic-European-charlatan architect Le Corbusier's paean to the corn silos of the American midwest. The Eutopian agenda of both corn manufacturers and the microbial eukaryotes ruminating in a Jersey cow converge in both the Midwestern corn-shed and this gallery.
