This exhibition focuses on the point of intersection between contemporary art and architecture, and through the artistic filter of one of the most influential architects of the last 30 years. The exhibition is jointly presented by Ace Museum and the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc.) The scope of the exhibition will explore the impact of Peter Noever's influence in the fields of architecture, design, and contemporary art, both in the US and abroad.
Host committee: Douglas Chrismas, Frank Gehry, Greg Lynn, Jeffrey Kipnis, Eric Owen Moss, Thom Mayne, Wolf Prix

The current work on display in Ace Museum's Project Space is titled Microscopic Perfect Cube (2005). The primary apparatus is designed as a vibration-free chamber to house the microscopic cube, coupled with a video magnification system to make the central object viewable. The cube itself is made of solid steel that has been reduced to a hundredth of an inch. Works from the Perfect Cube series are fabricated to a level that exceeds our ability to visually judge the accuracy that their titles declare; hence the power of these works lies in their ability to take such values to an extreme, creating a bar of distinction so high ('nano-precision') that it can't be met by the art viewer.
