Through July 29, Pacific Design Center’s Blue Lobby features three alluring solo sculpture exhibits that pair natural materials with industrial ones: Proposal for New Landscapes by Nobuo Sekine, one of the key founders of Japan’s Mono-ha (“School of Things”) movement and that nods to an overdue exploration of Japanese postwar culture; a retrospective by Italian architect/designer Antonio Pio Saracino and Lautner Beams by LA-based Matt Johnson, featuring metaphysical visualizations of string theory as re-purposed steel cast-offs from John Lautner’s demolished Shusett House.

The designLAb’s opening event will showcase 16 cutting-edge art, architecture and design, sound and taste exhibitions on view in the Pacific Design Center’s Blue Building Lobby and Second Floor Galleries. MOCA PDC opens the same night with a trailblazing contemporary photography exhibition, Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road.

The evening’s highlights include several one-night-only performances: Industry Gallery, (recently named in Art + Auction’s Power 100) presents Steve Boyer’s Tasting Bar with samplings of exotic, highly-concentrated bitters in the context of his ongoing digital exhibit, Drawing Agents. LA-based artist Steve Roden, who hopscotches between paintings,installations and sound works will create a one- hour live performance beginning at 8 p.m. at Young Projects Gallery. For this special occasion, Roden will perform an improvised sound piece to Stas Orlovski’s animation, Skazka, using a modular synthesizer that incorporates “found” audio materials.

As part of designLAb, Pacific Design Center’s nationally recognized arts program, PDC is will be debuting a permanent installation from French artist Xavier Veilhan, on view from June 12 onwards. The monumental mobile, titled “Mobile n°3 (Music),” composed of thirty floating spheres can be viewed from two levels within PDC’s Green Building to embrace the artistic language of architect Cesar Pelli’s landmark work. Now showcased permanently at Pacific Design Center, “Mobile n°3 (Music)” debuted this spring at Galerie Perrotin, in a double exhibition held simultaneously in the gallery’s New York and Paris locations.

One of the leading artists of his generation, Veilhan has developed a multi-form approach to sculpture, painting, performance, video and photography and is best known for his large-scale installations. Pacific Design Center’s owner and real estate mogul, Charles S Cohen, has multiple pieces in his personal collection and deems Veilhan a modern-day Calder. Veilhan gained international recognition with his 2009 exhibition at Chateau de Versailles in France. Recent projects in the U.S. include site-specific exhibitions in Los Angeles in 2012-2013 (Sheats-Goldstein Residence, Richard Neutra’s VDL Research House in Silver Lake, Case Study House no.21), “Jean-Marc” (2012) an outdoor work installed in midtown Manhattan and “Le Corbusier” (2013), a large-scale bust of the architect now permanently installed in Miami’s Design District. The Veilhan mobile joins other permanent installations at the PDC that include commissioned works by Erwin Redl, Gerardo Hacer and Antonio Pio Saracino, which are located in the Red Building.
