Please join us for Under the Influence 003, which will take place at the iconic Manola Court (aka Sachs Apartments) by R.M. Schindler.
Under the Influence is a series of conversations that expands upon the concepts of Los Angeles Modernism. This radical movement rejected predetermined rules and embraced experimentation, striving for freedom of expression in all areas of culture. Modernism also catalyzed an interest in social equality, politics, healthy environments, new materials, and innovation, ushering design into a new and transformative era. The series brings together architects, artists, and designers from all over the world to engage in dialogue with local architects, landscape architects, and creatives in LA's iconic modernist spaces. Bringing foreign and local voices into experimental and progressive conversations, we aim to uncover the influence of this radical approach on today’s culture and will reflect on what we do next.
Two speakers are invited for each talk: one local and one from elsewhere. Each speaker will present their work, highlighting the direct or indirect influence of the experimental approach that Los Angeles Modernism set in motion. The presentation will be followed by a dialogue among the speakers and with the audience, initiated by a question asked of each speaker to the other.
Date: Saturday, Nov 11th, 4:30 to 7:30pm
This program is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Department of Arts and Culture, and by Neutra VDL Studio and Residences.
Special thanks to the Manola Court for hosting this event.
