Hans Schabus & The Center for Land Use Interpretation
Fri, 16.11.2012–Sat, 02.03.2013
MAK Center L.A., Mackey Garage Top
The second exhibition in the series features Austrian artist Hans Schabus working in collaboration with The Center for Land
Use Interpretation (CLUI), a Los Angeles-based research and education organization. Parallel exhibits of maps and photographs
by Hans Schabus and CLUI depict different kinds of crossings of the landscape. In Schabus work, we see an urban river,
crossed by bridges and pipelines. The photographs from CLUI show a highway in the salt flats, crossed by culverts, located
on a topographic landscape map. Together these works comment on different qualities of conveyance, different modes of perception,
and our relationship to what was once known as the natural world, but is now something else entirely.
Garage Exchange Vienna Los Angeles The MAK Centers programming is guided by the imperative to promote dialogue and question boundaries, be they geographic
or disciplinary. A 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 Viennabased alumni residents to collaborate with L.A. artists and architects of their choosing
at the Garage Top at the Mackey Apartments.

The MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, founded in 1994, is a contemporary, experimental, multi-disciplinary
center for art and architecture and is based today in three of the most important houses by the Austrian-American architect
Rudolph M. Schindler. The core of the programming includes the internationally sought-after MAK Artists and Architects-in-Residence Program, an annual residency program for emerging international artists and architects.
The Pearl M. Mackey Apartments (R.M. Schindler, 1939) in the Mid-Wilshire District of Los Angeles are home to the MAK Artists and Architects-in-Residence program MAK Artists and Architects in Residence Program]. The Republic of Austria purchased the building on the initiative of the
MAK in 1995 and the program designed for visiting emerging international artists and architects was launched in the same year.
