The Making of an Avant-Garde

Thursday Feb 20, 2014 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM This is a past program

Co-presented with The MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House

The Institute of Architecture and Urban Studies (IAUS) began as a core group of young architects including Diana Agrest, Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson, Rem Koolhaas, Richard Meier, and Anthony Vidler, seeking alternatives to traditional forms of education and practice. IAUS has since redefined architectural discourse and practice in the United States and abroad. (2013, Dir. Diana Agrest, 64 min.) 

A Q&A with director Diana Agrest, Craig Hodgetts, and Kimberli Meyer follows the screening.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Simms/Mann Family Foundation, The Brotman Foundation of California, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and all Hammer members.
