Architectones at Neutra's VDL Research House

Architectones by Xavier Veilhan

VDL Research House

Excerpted from the Los Feliz Ledger:

French artist Xavier Veilhan’s site-specific sculptures are now on view at Neutra’s VDL Research House on Silver Lake Boulevard through Sunday Sept. 16th. Veilhan's intention was to trace Neutra’s life and times via abstract and figural sculptures. During the exhibition, water has been returned to the house for the first time in ages as both the front reflecting pool and rooftop pool have been refilled.

Veilhan’s detailed notes on his monochromatic sculptures inspired by the house and Neutra’s professional and personal life are here. Check out the site for an artist's look at the exhibition. The installation's mobiles and sculptures were conceived as a dialogue between art and architecture displayed in “the most important modern architectural private residence in America,” per Veilhan.

Visiting hours: Thursday/Friday 3-8pm and Saturday/Sunday 11am - 4pm.  Admission is $10. Guided tours of the house are only on Saturdays.
