Lush: A group exhibition of Landscape Architecture at the Schindler House
“California’s drought is a domestic challenge, to be taken on at the level of each front and back yard throughout the state’s neighborhoods, subdivisions, and cul-de-sacs. LUSH, the exhibition, began as an invitational charrette project that uses the MAK Center’s Fitzpatrick-Leland House (R.M. Schindler, 1936) in Laurel Canyon to ask leading landscape architects across Los Angeles to consider solutions both radical and practical.”
When:  Until Aug 6, 2017
Where:  Schindler House, 835 N Kings Road, West Hollywood, CA 90069

Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber / Edgar Arceneaux
“The exhibition’s title foregrounds an urban landscape of affective and material involvements, shifts, and movements that can be viewed as public, architectural, sociopolitical, and personal. No doubt that Banham, who came to celebrate the urban infrastructure built around the car, would love the idea of an exhibition in a garage.”

Summer Happenings at The Broad: Warhol Icon
The first program in Summer Happenings at The Broad is Warhol Icon, inspired by Nico, the German singer-songwriter, model and actress who became famous as one of Andy Warhol’s superstars in the 1960s. The program covers the breadth of her work from the Velvet Underground, through later synth collaborations, to her neo-folk approaches. Musical performances by Jenny Hval, Kembra Pfahler, Tiny Vipers and Geneva Jacuzzi evoke Nico’s experimental approaches toward music. Vaginal Davis weaves her performance with a rare screening of Philippe Garrel’s collaborative film starring Nico and Pierre Clementi, The Inner Scar, the histrionics of which are echoed in Nao Bustamante’s video installation, positioned in the lobby of The Broad.
