MAK Pool Party

  • Event
3:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

Celebrating Supporters of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture co-hosted with THIS X THAT featuring an installation by artist Paul Davies – June 7-28

Through your encouragement and engagement the MAK Center has managed to create a cultural sanctuary, which the LA Times named “one of the city’s top ten places that nourish the soul.” With the Schindler House nearing its Centennial Celebration and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House’s recent designation as a public museum space, we have the increasingly rare opportunity to grow in service of LA’s cultural community while maintaining our responsibility to its architectural past. 

The strength of this Support base is as crucial to the structure of the institution as the walls themselves. It is our hope that as we restore our buildings and focus our mission, we will increase our outreach through an extended members’ events program. We hope to see you on Saturday, June 24th and welcome you into this special band of instigators, innovators, and provocateurs that make up the MAK Center family!

About the Artist

Paul Davies is an Australian–born, Los Angeles–based artist whose work is driven by friction between opposing forces of built and natural environments, design and art, abstraction and figuration. These boundaries and relationships are illustrated through Davies’ process, which combines painting, stenciling, photography and sculpture. Davies recently completed a residency at The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture Phoenix.

His work is held in several public and corporate collections such as the Macquarie University, Maitland Regional Gallery, Historic Houses Trust, Gold Coast City Art Gallery, Artbank, Geelong Gallery, Rothschild, Kerry Stokes collection, Strickland, and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
