BCAM at LACMA

Posted in architecture, Art by petercombe on August 6, 2009

I’ll be in Santa Monica for the California Open at the TAG Gallery during the August 22nd weekend and am looking forward to checking out LACMA’s Renzo Piano designed wing.

The newly opened Broad Contemporary Art Museum at LACMA holds some of the most iconic artworks from the last four decades—most from the famed Broad Collections. Reflecting Eli and Edythe Broad’s practice of collecting artists in depth, BCAM’s sixty thousand square feet of gallery space are devoted primarily to groupings of works by single artists. BCAM provides rich representations of some of the most important artists of the last forty years, including Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, Cindy Sherman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Baldessari, Jeff Koons, Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, and Richard Serra.
