EXHIBIT — August 9–September 16, 2012
Xavier Veilhan’s Architectones
Neutra VDL Research House, Los Angeles
Already a pilgrimage site for modern architecture fans, the Neutra VDL Resarch House will become an even bigger draw for Angelenos this month with the opening of a site-specific installation by French artist Xavier Veilhan. The exhibition features monochrome sculptures and objects from the garden to the rooftop pool, and a soundtrack composed by Nicolas Godin of Air.
During an evening reception on August 8, Veilhan will announce the exhibition’s debut with a plane carrying a blank, abstract monochrome banner above the Silverlake Reservoir.
Hours: Thursday–Friday, 3–8 p.m., Saturday–Sunday, 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Cost: $10 Saturdays, when there are docent-led architecture tours of the house. $10 is also the suggested donation on other days.
