M&A and WCCW invite you to join us for a public discussion and exercise in care. In conversation with curator and feminist theorist Elke Krasny, we will discuss what care might look like in architectural and urban practices. We will ask how practices of care can contribute to new forms of activism, by expanding dialogues, engaging materialisms, transforming pedagogies, and projecting alternatives.

Collective Correctives is a new public program presented in the form of an exercise. The exercise invites guests to present their work through the activity of collective editing. Our first guest, On/Off, is a Berlin-based architectural collective founded in 2012 as an experiment in collective practice. Using internet, meetings, emails and Skype, ON/OFF is now based in no-place and works everywhere.
M&A and 2426 SET present Scenarios and Simulated Environments, a one-day presentation by artists Kelly Loudenberg and Richard Wheeler, whose work and research focuses on simulating simulations. From violence to surveillance, their separate artistic practices investigate, re-articulate, and stage the exercises and environments that result from an increasingly militarized world in which new environments are manufactured and new genres of spaces are constructed
Los Angeles Department of City Planning's Bryan Eck and Tal Harari present the City's vision document and plans-in-progress for rezoning downtown with an emphasis on Skid Row. This is a special opportunity to learn more about what the City has planned so far and to give input to the process.
What does community control look like? In the Trump Era, cities like Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco have rushed to reassure that their governments intend to oppose new restrictive federal immigration policies and to reinforce their statuses as Sanctuary Cities. But as homeless sweeps and evictions continue to endanger communities of working class and people of color in these cities, we have to ask: what does "sanctuary" mean in the era of rampant gentrification?
M&A and Big City Forum presents “After Hours,” a series of monthly gatherings that merge the art, design, and architecture communities of Los Angeles. “After Hours” invites exceptional individuals to engage in intimate conversations with a select audience.
Currently on display at the University Art Museum is a retrospective of M&As body of work from 2002 – 2013, which represents a nexus of some of the most progressive thinkers and makers in the fields of architecture and fine arts design in Los Angeles and beyond.
