DESCRIPTION

SUPERFRONT LA presents Architecture Live!

SUPERFRONT LA is proud to present Architecture Live!, a group exhibit of architectural work that explores themes of live action and time. The exhibit features installations that incorporate live plants and light, as well as two projected works.

The exhibit features installations by Paul Schuette, an architect and artist who was a fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program in 2005.  Schuette’s work, Hydroloops, is comprised of living sculptures – live plants and light systems – that generate diagrams of their own behaviors and environment.

Architecture Live! also presents filmic pieces by two young Brooklyn-based architecture practices: Fake Industries Architectural Agonism and Decker Yeadon.  ”Ay Caremelles”, a short live film,documents Fake Industries Architectural Agonism’s subversive approach to a municipal commission to activate a fenced-off square in Barcelona.  ”Smart Screen” by architects Decker Yeadon presents painterly footage of the architect’s thermo-responsive screen prototype opening and closing in response to ambient room temperatures.

Architecture Live! opens November 19th with reception 5pm – 8pm.  On view through December 16.
