Marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Austrian-American artist and architect, Frederick Kiesler (1890-1965), MoMA presents Endless House: Intersections of Art and Architecture. Kiesler’s theoretical concept of the endless living space began in 1922, with an emphasis on the relationship between space, people and objects. His architectural drawings, models and photographs depicting this space were first featured at MoMA in 1958-59. MoMA then commissioned Kiesler to build a full-scale prototype for the museum garden, which was never realized.
The exhibit Endless House highlights the works of architects like Frank Gehry, Mies van der Rohe, and Diller + Scofidio, and their significant projects that speak to the concepts of Frederick Kiesler, and the various ways in which we live today.
Endless House: Intersections of Art and Architecture will be on view at MoMA through March 6.
