PERHAPS IT is the polymorphic exuberance of Los Angeles sculptor Jorge Pardo that made him seem such a natural to reinvent L.A. County Museum of Art's display of pre-Columbian art. Pardo has spent his career so restlessly straddling the borders of sculpture, design and furniture that he has drawn humorous comparisons to IKEA and Martha Stewart. If you can't afford his luminous, geometric outdoor installations in massive concrete, you can always hope for a lamp.

The L.A. artist Jorge Pardo's work fuses art, design and architecture in an idiosyncratic, cross-pollinating, genre-busting mix that seeks to dissolve the boundaries between the gallery and "everything else," a.k.a. life — the bustling, complex world outside the gallery space. For his new exhibition, "Bulgogi," Pardo created a domestic space composed of rugs and wallpaper of his own design, "fan paintings" and a jewelry cabinet overflowing with baubles. Gagosian Gallery, 456 N. Camden Drive, Beverly Hills.

An open house is scheduled in the historic Mt. Washington neighborhood this weekend, but an open house of a most unusual sort. For the house in question is also a sculpture, designed by 35-year-old L.A.-based artist Jorge Pardo, and the open house doesn't send the typical signal that the house is for sale. Instead it's a sculpture exhibition, sponsored by the Museum of Contemporary Art and organized by curators Ann Goldstein and Stacia Payne.

A cacophony of pounding hammers and buzzing table saws disrupts the quiet Mount Washington neighborhood. Artist Jorge Pardo surveys the handiwork of carpenters, painters, electricians and technicians bustling to complete the angular redwood house at 4166 Sea View Lane. This is no ordinary house; it is actually intended as a functional artwork and opens to the public today as an off-site exhibition, part of the Museum of Contemporary Art's Focus Series.

Pablo Neruda remarked that "a bibliophile of little means is likely to suffer often. Books don't slip from his hands but fly past him through the air as high as birds, as high as prices." Expect a lot of that at next weekend's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, which brings together publishers from around the world. Many debut or announce big, beautiful books on L.A. artists, including Jorge Pardo, Jason Rhoades, Tim Hawkinson, Barbara Bloom, Frances Stark, Doug Aitken and Pat O'Neill.

I live in Mount Washington and have been walking by the structure referred to in your article as Jorge Pardo's "functional artwork" ("Welcome to the House That Jorge Built," by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, Oct. 11). What Pardo has done is taken a beautiful lot with 360-degree views and built a fortress with almost no exterior windows. With the exception of a 10-foot space between the compound-like buildings, there is no view. I like the building. Don't get me wrong. The interior levels are interesting.
