Kimberli Meyer, Director, MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, 11-10-06
Kimberli Meyer earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and practiced architecture in Chicago before moving to Southern California. She received her M.F.A. from California Institute of the Arts in 1995, and has since lived in Los Angeles pursuing art and architecture projects.
Ms. Meyer has been Director of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles at the Schindler House since 2002. There she has co-curated the current exhibition The Gen(h)ome Project along with Open Source Architecture. She has also co-curated the exhibition Symmetry (2006) with Nizan Shaked and Showdown! at the Schindler House (2004) with Fritz Haegj. She has directed guest curator François Perrin for the exhibition and publication Yves Klein: Air Architecture (2004) and has organized Schindler’s Paradise: Architectural Resistance (2003), an architectural ideas competition, exhibition, and publication.
The MAK Center for Art and Architecture is a contemporary, experimental, multidisciplinary center for art and architecture that operates from architect Rudolph M. Schindler’s own House and Studio (1922) in West Hollywood. It was established in 1994 as an alliance between the MAK Museum in Vienna and Friends of the Schindler House in West Hollywood.
Designed and built by Rudolph Schindler in 1921–1922 as live/work space for two families, the Schindler House redefined notions of residential space and architecture. It is the mission of the MAK Center to continue the conversation initiated by Schindler by creating and supporting programming that explores the dynamic intersections of art, architecture, and culture.
The MAK Center acts as a “think tank” for current issues in art and architecture by encouraging exploration and experimentation of artistic practices. It produces a year-round schedule of exhibitions, lectures, concerts, film screenings, performances, publications and new work commissions. It also hosts an international residency program for visiting artists and architects, who live and work in the Mackey Apartments (R. M. Schindler, 1939).
