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 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.
