Since its inception in 1994, the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House has been making a unique contribution to the artistic and cultural landscape of Los Angeles. Offering a year-round schedule of exhibitions, lectures, symposia, and concerts, the MAK Center proudly presents programming that challenges conventional notions of architectural space and relationships between the creative arts.
The Schindler House, located in West Hollywood, California, was built in 1922 by Rudolph M. Schindler, the esteemed modern architect and Viennese émigré. Regularly hosting artists, musicians, poets, writers, and actors, Schindler and his wife, Pauline, quickly turned their home into a center for avant-garde art and inquiry. Today, the Schindler House remains a site for progressive art and thought, and is regarded as one of Los Angeles’s most beloved architectural and cultural landmarks. In partnership with the Friends of the Schindler House, the MAK Center seeks to preserve and promote the house and its grounds, as well as its legacy.
In addition to an ambitious schedule of events, the MAK Center hosts a bi-annual residency program for eight innovative artists and architects from outside the U.S. Residents are selected through a juried competition at the MAK Vienna. At the conclusion of their stay at the Mackey Apartments, each Resident presents a completed project in an exhibition open to the public.
The MAK Center for Art and Architecture Los Angeles – partially funded by the Federal Ministry of Education, the Arts and Culture of the Republic of Austria – is a satellite of the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna, in cooperation with Friends of the Schindler House. Formed in 1994 through an initiative by MAK CEO and Artistic Director Peter Noever, the MAK Center constitutes a significant international alliance to preserve and promote the experimental spirit of R. M. Schindler as represented by his landmark Schindler House.
