Film screening

Wednesday, Feb. 13 
3:30 p.m. (doors at 3 p.m.) 
NeueHouse Hollywood, 6121 Sunset Blvd. 

The Proposal follows conceptual artist Jill Magid as she develops a radical project to explore artistic legacy, centering on the celebrated archive of Mexican architect Luis Barragán. Magid cultivates relationships with Barragán's family members, his admirers, and the director of the Barragán Foundation, in Switzerland — where the architect’s archives are aggressively "protected" and kept from public view.

Please join us for a screening of Magid's debut film, to be released in theaters this spring by Oscilloscope Laboratories. This is a free event, but RSVP is required; please email us at

A conversation with
Jill Magid and Jill Soloway 

Thursday, Feb. 14
9:30 a.m. (doors at 9 a.m.) 
NeueHouse Hollywood, 6121 Sunset Blvd. 

Artist/writer Jill Magid (The Proposal) and artist/activist Jill Soloway (Transparent) both trace and trouble the systems of power that invisibly shape our lives. As part of Frieze Week at NeueHouse, Fathomers presents a conversation between the artists exploring how permission — asking for it and not asking for it; having it granted or denied — variously enables, challenges, and invigorates their work.

Complimentary coffee, tea, and light breakfast goods will be served. This is a free event, but RSVP is required; please email us at
