Stephen Prina: As He Remembered It explores the dialogue between California modernist architecture and contemporary art, beginning with the artist’s personal memory from the 1980s of seeing a solitary pink RM Schindler built-in displayed in a shop window on La Brea Avenue. Following unfinished plans from two demolished Schindler houses, Prina’s recreations of Schindler built-ins are painted a bright pink and restaged in a grid pattern, raising questions about modern architecture’s relationship to site-specificity, particularly in Los Angeles.
