What’s the first thing you think when you see an airplane towing a blank, ivory banner through the sky? Can’t wrap your mind around it? Well, that’s one indication you’re dealing with modern art. This airborne performance will open “Architectones,” a new exhibition in Richard Neutra’s VDL Research House, located in Los Angeles’ Silverlake neighborhood. Neutra, one of the most significant historical figures of modernist architecture, built the glass and metal house with the financial backing of Dutch philanthropist Dr C.H. van der Leeuw (VDL) seventy-five years ago. As an homage to Neutra, figurative and abstract artist Xavier Veilhan has created a new series of installations for the house, on view starting Wednesday, August 8.

WEIGH IN:
