Join Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles in collaboration with Southern California Institue of Architecture (Sci-Arc) for a discussion between architects Marcelyn Gow & Florencia Pita on the work of Monika Sosnowska. Drawing from their unique backgrounds and on the occasion of the artist's first show in Los Angeles – 'Monika Sosnowska' – Marcelyn and Florencia will investigate Sosnowska’s manipulation of Brutalist architecture to explore how the estranged architectural object conjures multiple contexts, spaces and histories.

This event is free, however, reservations recommended.
