We are excited to welcome an exchange of artists in residence by welcoming artists and architects in residence at the MAK Center to 18th Street Arts Center for our monthly community potluck. Please join us for good food and lively conversation at 1pm! Bring a dish to share that conveys STRUCTURE of some sort (the BLT, a latticed pie, pringles, etc).
A conversation between WASA (current architects/ collective in residence at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture) and Carmen Argote (current artist lab resident at 18th Street Art Center) will introduce WASA’s architectural investigations around home and space. The conversation will center around notions of home, and try to ask questions about how and which architectural values should shape our future. The conversation begins at 2pm in the main gallery, right after a potluck lunch.
Guillermo Acosta, Alejandra Avalos and Alan Rios form the Mexico City-based architectural collective WASA. Carmen Argote is a Los Angeles based artist whose work focuses on the exploration of personal history through architecture and the spaces that she inhabits.
