A co-publication by LAND and Eighth Veil.

LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) is proud to present José León Cerrillo’s A House for Speculation, a co-publication with Eighth Veil. The publication was created in 2010 in conjunction with Cerrillo’s two-month residency, organized in collaboration with the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, at R.M. Schindler’s Fitzpatrick-Leland House. On site, Cerrillo produced a series of posters riffing on the graphic programs of a variety of sources – from the familiar Art and Architecture portfolio of “lifestyle” modernism, to Schindler’s and other LA-based architects’ bodies of work, to the present-day print material offered by the MAK Center itself.

Cerrillo’s project was part of VIA/Stage 1, a suite of temporary projects throughout Los Angeles by contemporary artists from Mexico, presented by LAND in 2010.
