MAK Center L.A., Mackey Garage Top
Garage Exchange Vienna Los Angeles
The MAK Center for Art and Architecture's programming is guided by the imperative to promote dialogue and question boundaries,
be they geographic or disciplinary. Key to this mission is the Artists and Architects-in-Residence program, which embodies
these ideas by bringing international, early career practitioners to Los Angeles. In order to expand the cultural exchange
at the core of the residency program, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture and the MAK Center have
initiated a new, biannual exhibition series, Garage Exchange Vienna Los Angeles, which invites Austrian and Vienna-based alumni residents to collaborate with L.A. artists and architects of their choosing
at the Garage Top at the Mackey Apartments.
The first exhibition, Bend a Bow, was created by former resident Sonia Leimer in collaboration with artist Stephanie Taylor with the goal of investigating the layered dynamics of narrative and its construction. Because they felt her work resonated
with theirs, the artists invited acclaimed avant-garde filmmaker Barbara Hammer to include her film Bent Time as part of the installation.
This exhibition series is made possible by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture.
