Soirée at the Lantern House

Hub #1

 
One of the greatest perks of being a MUI intern is that I get to discover and be amazed about the different art spaces that exist in Los Angeles. Yesterday, I had my first Getty HUB meeting. Besides having the opportunity to visit the 18th St. Arts Center, Villa Aurora, and Eames House, I also had the chance to meet wonderful interns who were just as passionate about art as I was that day.


During our first stop at the 18th St. Arts Center, we had the chance to meet three different artists living in the arts residency. One of them was Brendan Fernandes whose work I had previously seen at the Seattle Art Museum in the “Disguise: Masks & Global African Art” exhibit. My favorite work by him was “From Hiz Hands” because it dealt with the exoticism of Africa, which is often seen as a cultural monolith rather than a continent with distinct customs from North to South.


After stopping to grab some quick lunch, we headed to Villa Aurora and Eames House. At the Villa, one of the interns explained to us that this space was used as an arts residency for German-born artists or artists who were working in Germany. The house was built in a beautiful Spanish-style from the colonial period and once belonged to the German-Jewish author Lion Feuchtwanger. At the second location, we visited the home that Charles and Ray Eames designed during the 1940’s. The house was titled “Case Study House #8” because it was built for a hypothetical client living in the modern world with very specific needs.
