Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983
This is exhibit is so good I’ve gone twice! Once at the opening then again with my kids and other families. I’d highly recommend that you all go support this celebration of black artists as well. It’s on display at The Broad museum in downtown LA at 221 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90012 until September 1st 2019!
My daughter and I agree this is the artwork we most want in our house. Art + Larceny!
I never saw this piece by David Hammons before, but I love it.
My daughter takes a picture of a brilliant piece about the death of MLK.
At the opening I ran into one of my heroes, Greg Tate. Back in my New York days, we spent endless hours discussing every possible permutation of the black aesthetic. His Sun Ra meets P.Funk writing style is a huge influence on me. Plus he’s a great guy.
Michael Jackson and Bubbles by Jeff Koons, part of the permanent collection.
Kara Walker, part of their permanent collection.
Hanging out after the opening with Sheila Marmon, Amy DuBois Barnett, and Shaun Robinson.
