Albert Frey and Lina Bo Bardi: A Search for Living Architecture

September 9th, 2017 – January 7th, 2018
Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center

This exhibition presents an unprecedented exploration of two visionary architects who critically expanded the meaning and practice of modern architecture. Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992) emigrated from Italy to Brazil in 1946 and Albert Frey (1903–1998) from Switzerland to the United States in 1930. 

Veronika Kellndorfer's work is part of the display, showing an artistic and contemporary approach to Lina Bo Bardi. Tree House, taken at the exterior of the Casa de Vidro, shows the pattern of the building burnt as a silk-screen print in glass. Kellndorfer examines the graphic qualities, the intersection of architecture and landscape, the transformations of light and the movements between inside and outside in Brazil’s architecture, a place of the continuation of Modernism. 

A Search for Living Architecture is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place from September 2017 through January 2018. Curated by Daniell Cornell and Zeuler R. Lima
