What is this?
It’s a newsletter…an announcement…no, it’s both. In an effort to conserve our reserves and to regularize our mailings, the Board approved this combo-format. Comments, tomatoes…the jury’s still out. Thanks to Sylvia Lavin for coming to our aid and guest editing this issue.
The Book/Its Exhibition
It wasn’t just a figment of Aaron’s overzealous imagination. Advance copies of the soon-to-be-available, Rizzoli-published, Forum book,Experimental Architecture in Los Angeles, have been sighted but not yet in bookstores. Substantial discounts for members are being negotiated. Plans to work with MOCA to mount and exhibit in the TC showcasing the work of those in the book hit the skids with MOCA’s announcement that TC would close for 18 months after “Helter Skelter.” Alternative venues are sought.
Peter Lipson, answering the call of the open road, left town and his position of Activities Committee chair. Our next series, “The Spring Collection,” will be chaired jointly by Marc Tedesco and Aaron Betsky.
The Forum’s next pamphlet The LA School Reader, rumored to be approaching book-size, is in the works.
The Activities, Publications and Exhibitions Committees all need new participants. If you’d like to get involved leave a message on our machine 213-852-7145.
