ock ssNonEditable">Contemporary architecture—especially the Los Angeles variant—comes to the Central Coast on January 5, when Almost Anything Goes: Architecture and Inclusivity opens at the MCA Santa Barbara. Featuring the work of Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Rudolph, Design, Bitches; Doris Sung, DOSU Studio Architecture; Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues, Ball-Nogues Studio; Miles Kemp, Digital Physical / Variate Labs; Elena Manferdini, Atelier Manferdini; and Ramiro Diaz Granados, Amorphis, and Matthew Au, the show includes installations, photography, material samples, textiles, and interactive media.
It’s the brainchild of the museum’s executive director and chief curator Miki Garcia and visiting curator Brigitte Kouo. For Garcia, the show is an opportunity “to expand our audience and create more diverse programming that’s larger in scope,” she says. Besides that, “There aren’t that many exhibitions on the Central Coast that focus on emerging practices in architecture.”
