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.

Wiener Werkstätte Archive

Curator: Elisabeth Schmuttermeier
The Wiener Werkstätte (WW, 1903–1932) left a lasting mark on the history of product development and even today its output continues to be a significant influence for architects and designers. Apart from numerous objects from WW-production, since 1955 the MAK holds its archive that provides illustration of the production process of the products made in the Werkstätte, and also clarifies their identification and specifications.
