An exhibition of works by five artists - Hanne Darboven, Caryl Davis, Amanda Guest, Gerald Giamportone, Nancy Rubins - who
utilize the drawing process in the creation of works that engage sculptural form through their materials and construction.
Taking the form of drawing, collage, photography and sculpture, these works emphasize the drawn mark as part of a sculptural
process in which materials are transformed and space is articulated. In this exhibition the act of drawing is not for the
sake of gesture or representation, rather the drawn mark maps out a territory creating a structural or material foundation
from which the work is constructed.
The title Markings alludes both to the act of drawing through making a mark as well as to the form or visual residue that
is the result of that act. It implies a deliberate delineation of space; a territory that has been marked and that bears the
trace of a presence.
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.
