SYMPATHETIC SEEING

Esther McCoy and The Heat of American Modernist.Architecture and Design
Wed, 28.09.2011–Sun, 29.01.2012

MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, USA

This is the first exhibition to highlight the extraordinary range and importance of McCoy’s work. The show and the accompanying fully-illustrated catalog survey McCoy’s Los Angeles activities, including her activist journalism in the 1930s focusing on Los Angeles slum clearances; her inside view of the day-to-day workings of architect Rudolph M. Schindler’s studio; her work with popular and architectural press and the rise of innovative domestic architecture; her campaign to save Irving Gill’s 1916 Dodge House; and her always incisive stories that deliver an irresistibly compelling, first-hand view of American modernism.
