CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

06.16.2013-09.16.2013

A New Sculpturalism: Contemporary Architecture from Southern California examines the work of more than thirty major and emerging figures in contemporary Los Angeles architecture of the last twenty-five years.Celebrating the ideas, projects, and processes of an architectural community that continually seizes the opportunity to redefine architecture, locally and globally, from within a city renowned for incubating architectural experimentation.

The exhibition presents works by thirty-eight architectural firms based in Los Angeles, including Atelier Hitoshi Abe, Arshia Mahmoodi, Atelier Manferdini, Baumgartner + Uriu (B+U), Ball-Nogues Studio, Belzberg Architects, Bestor Architecture, Brooks + Scarpa Architects, Coscia Day Architecture and Design, Gehry Partners, Coy Howard & Company, Daly Genik Architects, Eric Owen Moss Architects, Franklin D. Israel Design Associates, Gehry Partners, Giovannini Associates, Greg Lynn FORM, Griffin Enright Architects, Hodgetts + Fung, JOHNSTONMARKLEE, Jones, Partners: Architecture, Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects, MAKE Architecture, Mark Mack Architects, Michael Maltzan Architecture, Morphosis Architects, Neil M. Denari Architects, Patrick Tighe Architecture, P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, Predock Frane Architects, Randall Stout Architects, RoTo Architects, Saee Studio, Studio Works Architects, Tom Wiscombe Design, Touraine Richmond Architects, Warren Techentin Architecture, and XTEN Architecture.

Presented at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, whose signature space was created with Frank Gehry's 1983 renovation and intended by the architect as a kind of active "arts studio", the exhibition invites the visitor to explore the architect's medium and design process through models, full-scale maquettes and pavilions. Throughout the exhibition, the process of making architecture and how this has changed in the last twenty-five years is evidenced in the wide range of materials and techniques that comprise the two and three-dimensional body of work that is presented.

In addition to a range of built work being showcased, three pavilions designed especially for the exhibition by younger and emerging Los Angeles firms will be presented. These structures will succinctly demonstrate that many of the earlier innovations that took place in the late 1970s and 1980s are still very much part of the dialogue in architecture today. They will also highlight the changes and advancements in digital technology that have allowed for the use of a plethora of new geometries and materials.

Exploring the inventions and experimentation of Los Angeles' architectural community, this exhibition demonstrates how the city is one of the world's vibrant centers for architectural thinking and creation, exporting its creative, intellectual capital all over the world.

Major support for the exhibition has been provided by the Getty Foundation and The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation.

Generous support is provided by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.

Additional support is provided by the Pasadena Art Alliance and Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown.
