This week, Whitewall is in Los Angeles for the inaugural edition of Frieze Los Angeles at Paramount Pictures Studio, open to the public February 15—17. Around town, you’ll find the first edition of Whitewaller Los Angeles, out for the fair and surrounding events and exhibitions. The magazine features Guest Editor Kulapat Yantrasast, the architect who is also behind Frieze’s site-specific bespoke structure.
Earlier this week, on Tuesday, February 12, Whitewall hosted a design and art-focused panel at Luminaire‘s Los Angeles location. Amid an open, two-story showroom full of contemporary and modern furniture and objects, guests gathered for a unique discussion.
Los Angeles-based dealer Carlos A. Rivera played the role of moderator for the evening, facilitating a conversation around a major architectural movement’s eventual influence on the West Coast, entitled “Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, and now L.A.: A Journey into the movements of art and architecture.”
Yantrasast and art collector Alberto Chehebar (also featured in Whitewaller Los Angeles, out this week) spoke of how Bauhaus and West Coast lifestyle has impacted their practice, taste, eye, and passion for contemporary art.
The intimate evening was hosted by Whitewall‘s own Michael Klug and Laurent Moïsi, as well as Luminaire‘s Nasir and Nargis Kassamali.
