Conference on Saturday October 4th and Sunday October 5th, 2014
At the MAK Center, Neutra VDL House, and Hollyhock House, Los Angeles
Organized by Sarah Lorenzen and Bryony Roberts
Supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts
This two-day conference investigates the power of experimental art installations to remake the spatial and social realities of modernist house museums. The symposium responds to the curatorial shift in the maintenance of house museums, in which directors are supporting increasingly transformative art installations that both challenge and celebrate the modernist landmarks. The conference will host a series of conversations between house museum directors, curators, artists and architects to reveal the curatorial motivations and artistic processes behind these interventions.
