Gerard & Kelly Modern Living
MAK Center for Art and Architecture, January 2016
The Glass House,  May 2016

Modern Living, a performance artwork by Gerard & Kelly brought to life in collaboration with Benjamin Millepied’s 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. Working with the nine dancers of LA Dance Project, Gerard & Kelly created a performance score that re-imagines the homes as sites of experiments in living, positing architecture as choreography for relationships.
