It has been exactly one year since my husband and I decided to take a chance on moving to LA. It wasn’t an easy move but we are so thankful that we did. LA has brought so many new opportunities for us with new explorations and adventures to take on. Never a dull moment in “The City of Angels”. I will forever be a tourist here in LA.
Last Friday we received an exiting email, one we had been waiting for almost months. We finally got tickets to the Rain Room at LACMA! Who knew checking out an art exhibition would be so difficult. Nonetheless, we were thrilled to finally go and made a day out of it by exploring all that LACMA had to offer. From the infamous Rain Room and Urban Light to original artwork from Andy Warhol and Picasso … we saw it all.
If you live in LA or ever plan to make a trip out this way, I strongly encourage you to check out Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
This instillation will only be around until March 6th. What makes this room so incredible is the continuous falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected. Such an incredible experiment and genius idea.
Metropolis II: Miniature cars race through this built city at 240 scale miles per hour; every hour. According to Burden, “The noise, the continuous flow of the trains, and the speeding toy cars produce in the viewer the stress of living in a dynamic, active and bustling 21st century city.”
Miracle Mile: Robert Irwin reconsiders the properties of light, material, and color with this instillation which blurs the spectrum of color that is cast. The states of light and shadow, shallowness and depth, and presence and absence play with perception.
Irwin has stated, “As artists, the one true inquiry of art as a pure subject is an inquiry of our potential to know the world around us and our actively being in it, with a particular emphasis on the aesthetic. This world is not just somehow given to us whole. We perceive, we shape the world, and as artists we discover and give value to our human potential to “see” the infinite richness (beauty?) in everything, creating an extended aesthetic reality.”
