Gerard & Kelly, Modern Living
Modern Living, a new performance artwork by Gerard & Kelly brought into life in collaboration with L.A. Dance Project, explores themes of queer intimacy and domestic space within legacies of modernist architecture. The project brings into dialogue two homes lived in by the architects who built them - the landmark Schindler House in West Hollywood, California, and Philip Johnson's Glass House - and marks the first cross-country cooperation between these legendary sites working on a single artist's project.
Modern Living is presented by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture and the Schindler House and The Glass House, and co-produced by L.A. Dance Project in association with Art Production Fund.
Modern Living is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support provided by Uri Minkoff, NeueHouse, Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, and Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
