About the event From January 30 - March 26, 2010, Mexico City-based artist José León Cerrillo took up residence at R.M. Schindler's Fitzpatrick-Leland House, reanimating the space through constant artistic production and punctuated events. On site, Cerrillo produced a series of posters riffing on the graphic programs of a variety of sources - from the familiar Art and Architecture portfolio of "lifestyle" modernism, to Schindler's and other LA-based architects' body of work, to the present-day modernist architectural imagery as translated in popular print media and advertising.
This work has been collected in a limited edition portfolio and publication to be on first view during this evening. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org more information or to purchase the edition.
