Exhibitions Weil am Rhein, Germany February 2, 2019 - July 7, 2019

This first solo exhibition of Mexican artist duo Lake Verea in a European museum focuses on their ongoing Paparazza Moderna project, in which they create poetic portraits of single-family houses designed by renowned modernist architects. Francisca Rivero-Lake and Carla Verea approach these buildings like paparazzi – unannounced and spontaneous – with the aim of capturing them in an unembellished, private state. Lake Verea’s evocative photographic compositions of buildings by Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Richard Neutra, Rudolf M. Schindler, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Philip Johnson were taken between 2011 and 2018 during their journeys throughout the US.
