MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, USA
In the world of space and time, symmetry derives its meaning from a center, a repetition of forms on mirroring sides of an
axis. The exhibition Symmetry features works by Los Angeles-based contemporary artists that use or relate to this concept. The artworks in the exhibition
underscore and often directly respond to the unique symmetry of the Schindler House. Like the house, the works perform a spin
on the idea of balance, the use of symmetryor its careful undoingappearing sometimes on the surface, sometimes
hidden in the structure, but always at the core of a works meaning. Symmetry presents work by nine artists: Edgar Arceneaux, Patrick Hill, Brandon Lattu, Sandeep Mukherjee, Amy Sarkisian, Eddo Stern
and Jessica Hutchins, Stephanie Taylor and Sam Watters.
The home and studio of the Austrian-American architect Rudolph M. Schindler on Kings Road in West Hollywood serves today as the homebase of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles. This seminal building was declared an architectural landmark by the World Monument Fund in 2002. Today Schindler counts
as one of the most important modern architects.
