Event Description

Commonly understood today as a set of beliefs or practices in conflict with prevailing dogma, the word "heresy" derives from the Greek "heiresis," meaning “choice.” In classical antiquity, the term also signified a period during which a young philosopher would examine various schools of thought in order to determine his future way of life.

Gathering an array of original drawings, models, photographic documentation, video recordings, and commentary alongside new assessment by current scholars, A Confederacy of Heretics aims neither to canonize the participating architects nor to consecrate their unorthodox activities. Rather, the exhibition re-examines the early work of some of Los Angeles' most well-known architects in a contemporary context, charts the development of their most potent design techniques, and documents a crucial turning point in Los Angeles architecture, a time when Angeleno architecture culture shifted from producing local variations on imported themes to exporting highly original disciplinatory innovations to a global audience.

Taken together, the exhibition, symposium, and catalog that comprise A Confederacy of Heretics offer a unique lens through which to analyze a pivotal moment in the development of late 20th century architecture.
