Chloë Flores, Director & Co-Founder
Chloë Flores is co-founder and the director of GuestHaus Residency. She is an independent writer, curator, and arts producer based in Los Angeles. She received her Masters of Art and Curatorial Practice in the Public Sphere from the University of Southern California in 2011.
Flores’ curatorial practice is driven by an interdisciplinary methodology in which subjective experience serves as a tool for the analysis of process-oriented artwork. Her ongoing curatorial project, Chloë Flores, on Facebook, is an art space and curatorial project that utilizes the user-based, social interface of Facebook as a public space for exhibition and representation—of oneself, of others, and of art.
Her curator project, Within, is an exhibition and program of events that explore the perceiving self, embodiment, and the corporeal production of knowledge at Cypress College, CA. She has recently co-curated Work After Work at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture Mackey Garage Top in Los Angeles in 2011; and Public Postage: Responses to Art Against Empire at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) in 2010.
She has contributed texts and essays for exhibitions, catalogues and books including, but not limited to, University of California, Riverside’s California Museum of Photography exhibition Matt Lipps: HORIZON/S in 2012; Work After Work at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture Mackey Garage Top in Los Angeles in 2011; Fallen Fruit’s Let Them Eat LACMA in 2010; The Orange County Museum's 2010 California Biennial; the J. Paul Getty Museum’s California Video exhibition in 2008; and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE).
From 2005-2007 Flores co-directed and co-curated enView gallery in Long Beach, an eclectic art space, community hub, and platform for emerging artists.
Tim Lefevre, Co-Founder
Timothy Lefevre is a third generation General Contractor in Los Angeles. His family’s contribution to the built environment of the city includes classic churches and other institutional buildings. Many, such as Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks and the Serra Retreat House in Malibu, are prime examples of the southern California regional style with its roots in Mission architecture and Hollywood film imagery. In the last fifteen years Lefevre has revisited this recent past with award winning courtyard housing projects like 7 Fountains in West Hollywood and the Vista Del Arroyo Bungalows in Pasadena.
