The Equitable Life Building is an iconic Los Angeles skyscraper designed by Welton Becket & Associates and built in 1969. Its lobby offers a clean, pristine, and highly visible public space for the presentation of objects and actions.
Prominent artists and thinkers are invited to select or produce things to be displayed in one or both of the lobby’s twenty foot long vitrines for a duration of three months. A concomitant series of performances will serve to establish the large and resonant lobby as a vitrine in itself, visible from the surrounding courtyard through floor to ceiling glass walls.
The goal of Equitable Vitrines is to promote encounters that are relevant to the building’s occupants and visitors; to a diverse constituency of passers by; and to members of the contemporary art community in Los Angeles and beyond—in that order.
