Claude Parent – Architectural Fictions Exhibition – DTLA

October 14, 2023 - October 29, 2023

The Claude Parent Archives and The Front are pleased to announce the opening of Claude Parent – Architectural Fictions on October 14, 2023 from 6 – 9pm, at The Front, 2207 N. Broadway in Los Angeles. This will also be a rare opportunity for collectors and architects to view and acquire Claude Parent’s visionary drawings before they are returned to the archive in Paris in November of this year. Chloé Parent, Parent’s daughter, will be in attendance. 

This new exhibition of acclaimed French architect’s drawings focuses on the significance of drawing as means to communicate an idea. The original graphite works on paper from the Claude Parent Archives in Paris on exhibit at The Front, most of them never seen in Los Angeles, do not represent actual proposals for buildings, but rather offer speculations on the possibility of the Oblique Function at various scales and applications, what Parent called architectural fictions. The work shown will also include study and preparatory sketches.

Now extended to October 29!

Exhibition on view > October 14 – 29, 2023

Saturday and Sunday > open to the public between 12 pm – 6 pm

Monday – Friday > BY APPOINTMENT ONLY from 1pm to 6pm
