The MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House, Los Angeles develops local, national, and international projects exploring experimental and contemporary art, architecture and related disciplines. Acting as a “think tank” for current issues, the MAK Center encourages exploration of practical and theoretical aspects in art and architecture by engaging the Center’s places, spaces, and histories.

The MAK Center was established in 1994 as an alliance between the MAK Vienna (Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art) and Friends of the Schindler House (FOSH) in West Hollywood. The MAK Center is headquartered in the Modernist landmark R.M. Schindler House (1921-22) in West Hollywood, which it uses as a primary presentation space. In addition, the MAK Center maintains and occupies two other Schindler-designed buildings, the Mackey Apartments (1939) and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House (1936).

The MAK Center’s programming includes exhibitions, lectures, symposia, performances, music series, publication projects, and new work commissions, frequently developed in conjunction with guest curators, artists and architects. It also hosts two residency programs, the MAK Center Artist and Architect in Residency Program at the Mackey Apartments, and the MAK Urban Future Initiative at the Fitzpatrick-Leland House. The MAK Center’s programming is responsive to shifts in discussions and practices within the arts and architecture. Through interactive dialogue, the MAK Center serves as a vehicle through which ideas are continuously tested and considered by a fluent and engaged audience.
