From 2018 forward, the MAK Center for Art and Architecture’s Fitzpatrick-Leland House in Laurel Canyon will play host to a series of ongoing design-centric exhibitions and programming, kicking off with Pin-up: A Designed Tribute to Schindler’s L.A. This show brings together four Los Angeles-based designers and one artist around the Austrian-born California modernist architect R.M. Schindler: Atelier de Troupe, led by Gabriel Abraham; Brendan Ravenhill; Pamela Shamshiri with John Williams; and long-time Schindler advocates Marmol Radziner.

The Fitzpatrick-Leland House (1936) was originally commissioned by developer Clifton Fitzpatrick as a spec house (a real estate promotion to attract buyers to the new housing tracts in Laurel Canyon). Schindler’s now classically modernist design established the area as a common ground for L.A.’s cultural and political avant-garde, and the house continues to inspire today’s thriving creative community.

Opening Night: Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 5 p.m. 8 p.m.

On view through February 11, 2018 by appointment only. Click here to make your appointment today.
