MOCA’s A New Sculpturalism show stalled and restarted amidst a dispute over its curatorial direction. But it may also offer an exciting taste of the architecture of tomorrow. On this show, LA architects discuss why they don’t want to be “sculpturalists,” even as they showcase work in an art museum; and they give us a taste of the latest manifestation of LA’s long tradition of architectural experimentation. With Frank Gehry, Thom Mayne, Neil Denari, Christopher Mount, Christopher Hawthorne, Georgina Huljich, Marcelo Spina, Elena Manferdini, Benjamin Ball, Tom Wiscombe and Michael Webb.
