The MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House recently premiered the first half of a two-part exhibition, entitled 91 92 93. The exhibition, presented in January and May, will examine the creation of an aesthetic idiom through key projects of the early 1990s with the migration of artists from New York to Los Angeles. Part one of the exhibition serves as a performative aspect, with the residence of Warren Niesluchowski, longtime assistant to Alanna Heiss of P.S. 1 in New York City. His piece will continue exploring concepts first presented in Simon Leung's installation Warren Piece (in the 1970s)--which will be shown in part two of the exhibit--as a modern chapter in the enigmatic figure's life.
The second part of the 91 92 93 exhibition will present the works by Simon Leung, Andrea Fraser, and Lincoln Tobier to raise questions of the influence of artists and professors on Southern Californian Art Students. Through examining the role of art in constructing social norms and influencing architecture and design, as well as presenting a play on FOX News Executive Roger Ailes, part two of 91 92 93 will cover topics rooted in the 90s that are still pertinent in today's society.
Part one of 91 92 93 runs from January to February, 2011, with part two from May 11, 2011 - August 1, 2011. For more information on the exhibitions, visit the MAK center website.
