Calder and Abstraction at LACMA
The curation of this exhibit is particularly exceptional. The mobiles are placed within curved white structures that help frame the forms and make the colors pop. In addition, there are wonderfully preserved photographs showing Alexander Calder working in his studio and hanging out with other famous artists during the time such as Joan Míro and Jean Arp.
This exhibit is on view until July 27th.
James Turrell at LACMA
Although I found the James Turrell exhibit at LACMA to be somewhat shorter than I had imagined it to be, the works themselves were captivating and it was overall a very worthwhile exhibit. “Key Lime” shown above was especially interesting because it created some tension in the viewer by suggesting that the space continues beyond the viewer’s sight. I enjoyed this work the most because it was particularly captivating and peaceful.
