An inside look at the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design’s Summer 2020 exhibition “Every. Thing. Changes.” with an introduction by Curator Wendy Gilmartin and Assistant Curator Nina Briggs, accompanied by interviews with exhibition participants including Imogen Teasley-Vlautin, Jose Herrasti, Anthony Carfello, Loren Adams, Yara Feghali and Viviane El-Kmati. The exhibition presents 20 new works documenting the collective view of life in Los Angeles in its new decade. The newly commissioned texts and visual works exhibited in “Every. Thing. Changes.” were developed over the course of spring 2020, and are the outcomes of a “call and response” process between five initial L.A.-based writers, their texts, and the visual responses of five L.A.-based collaborators (of the allied design disciplines: architecture, landscape architecture, urban design). The 10 writers/designers then chose one additional collaborator each to bring into the process, for a total of 20 new visual and text-based works.
“Every. Thing. Changes.” Participants include: Loren Adams, John Atkinson, Orhan Ayyüce, Sam Bloch, Anthony Carfello, Polaris Castillo, Yvonne Estrada, Viviane El-Kmati, Yara Feghali, Lorena Garcia, Silvia Herrasti, Paulina Herrasti, Tory J. Lowitz, MUTUO Architects, Viva Padilla, Jakob Sellaoui, Julie Smith-Clementi, Frank Clementi, Cameron Stallones, Hyunch Sung, Lisa Teasley, Imogen Teasley-Vlautin, and Terry Wolverton.
