ENTER>text and homeLA are pleased to announce a collaboration with the Neutra Studio and Residences (VDL Research House) culminating in an immersive performance event on Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Dance, literary, performance, installation and sound artists are currently developing new works in response to this distinctive architecture and National Historic Landmark.
The Neutra Studio and Residences (VDL Research House) is associated with Richard Neutra, a nationally and internationally seminal figure of the twentieth century Modern movement in architecture. During the 1940s, as Neutra’s work evolved, he also became the well-recognized founder of mid-century “California Modern” architecture. The VDL Research House is the only property where one can see the progression of his style over a period of years and is among the key properties to understanding the national significance of Richard Neutra.
This year the Neutra Studio and Residences (VDL Research House) was named a National Historic Landmark.
