Conversations on Making Place
March 17, 2011
17 March 2011, 7 – 9 pm
Closing Reception and Panel Discussion
Painted Over/Under Part 3: Making Place is the architecture-inspired section of a yearlong exhibition conceptualized by artist Kim Schoenstadt. Featuring Los Angeles-based architecture and design firms Predock_Frane Architects, Chee Salette Architecture Office (csao),and Florencia Pita mod and curated by Erin Cullerton, Making Place showcases two-dimensional, abstracted vignettes of the Los Angeles cityscape. As both an exercise in artful placemaking and a response to the powerful imagery of forgotten urban landscapes, Making Placeexplores the myriad ways Los Angeles has layered itself into a complex network of activity at once dense and urbanistically challenged. The exhibition further explores the impact of sprawl, developer-led density, and transportation and water access, among other concerns.
Moderated by KCRW’s Frances Anderton, Conversations on Making Place will explore the exhibition’s themes while broadly looking at the ways thoughtful placemaking has shaped the city of Los Angeles. The panel will feature artist Kim Schoenstadt, curator Erin Cullerton, John Frane, Hadrian Predock, Marc Salette, and Florencia Pita.
Conversations on Making Place is sponsored by LACE, de LaB, AIA Los Angeles and FORM magazine.
