This exhibition is organized by David White, Senior Curator of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.

Gerard + Kelly: Modern Living May 13 + 14, 2016
Modern Living, a new project by Gerard & Kelly, 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. The project explores themes of queer intimacy and domestic space within legacies of modernist architecture.

Ivy Baldwin Dance: Keen (Part 1) May 22, 2016
Choreographer Ivy Baldwin’s latest work, a new piece commissioned by the Glass House, brings a powerful yet often hidden emotion to life within the Glass House and its dramatic grounds. Keen (Part 1) embodies the emotional and physical experience of loss, memory and holding love, and filters it through the lens of serene Modernism and chaotic wilderness.
