Hans Schabus & The Center for Land Use Interpretation
Fri, 16.11.2012–Sat, 02.03.2013
MAK Center L.A., Mackey Garage Top
The second exhibition in the series features Austrian artist Hans Schabus working in collaboration with The Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), a Los Angeles-based research and education organization. Parallel exhibits of maps and photographs by Hans Schabus and CLUI depict different kinds of crossings of the landscape. In Schabus work, we see an urban river, crossed by bridges and pipelines. The photographs from CLUI show a highway in the salt flats, crossed by culverts, located on a topographic landscape map. Together these works comment on different qualities of conveyance, different modes of perception, and our relationship to what was once known as the natural world, but is now something else entirely.

The MAK Centers programming is guided by the imperative to promote dialogue and question boundaries, be they geographic or disciplinary. A key to this mission is the Artists and Architects-in-Residence program, which embodies these ideas by bringing international, early career practitioners to Los Angeles. In order to expand the cultural exchange at the core of the residency program, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture and the MAK Center have initiated a new, biannual exhibition series, Garage Exchange Vienna Los Angeles, which invites Austrian and Viennabased alumni residents to collaborate with L.A. artists and architects of their choosing at the Garage Top at the Mackey Apartments.
This exhibition series is made possible by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture.

MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles
The MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, founded in 1994, is a contemporary, experimental, multi-disciplinary center for art and architecture and is based today in three of the most important houses by the Austrian-American architect Rudolph M. Schindler. The core of the programming includes the internationally sought-after MAK Artists and Architects-in-Residence Program, an annual residency program for emerging international artists and architects.
The Pearl M. Mackey Apartments (R.M. Schindler, 1939) in the Mid-Wilshire District of Los Angeles are home to the MAK Artists and Architects-in-Residence program MAK Artists and Architects in Residence Program]. The Republic of Austria purchased the building on the initiative of the MAK in 1995 and the program designed for visiting emerging international artists and architects was launched in the same year.
