On Tuesday, February 12 Luminaire LA and Whitewall magazine will host the dialogue titled Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, and now LA: A journey into the movements of art and architecture. Los Angeles-based art collector Alberto Chehebar and Thai architect Kulapat Yantrasast will join a discussion moderated by Whitewall founder and publisher Michael Klug exploring the lasting influence of the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, and the relationship between art within architecture.

Kulapat Yantrasast is the founding partner and creative director of wHy, an interdisciplinary design studio dedicated to serving the arts, communities, cultures and the environment. Born in Bangkok, he graduated with honors from Chulalongkorn University in 1990 and later received both his M.Arch. and Ph.D. degrees in Architecture from the University of Tokyo. After graduate school Yantrasast worked with Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect Tadao Ando for eight years.

Alberto Chehebar was born in Bogotá and began collecting art in the early 1990s. He discovers new works and artists not only by his weekly visits to multiple studios, but also via Instagram where he has gained recognition for his well-curated feed of beautifully photographed works from his private collection, studio visits, as well as his travels and daily inspirations. After living in Miami for 16 years, Chehebar now calls Los Angeles home which he describes as the current creative capital of the world.

Coinciding with Frieze Los Angeles’ inaugural year, the event kicks off Luminaire’s Dialogue series for 2019 which provide a platform for thought-provoking lectures, talks, and panel discussions while exploring a wide-range of topics.
