Broad Contemporary Art Museum Inaugural Installation
The newly opened Broad Contemporary Art Museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art offers visitors the distilled essence of contemporary American art.
It provides iconic artworks from some of the most important artists of the last forty years,
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.
Richard Serra's minimalist steel sculpture, Band, occupies most of the first floor.
It is so large, 13 feet tall, 70 feet long and 40 feet wide that the viewer walks inside it.
Interestingly, each of about a dozen plates that comprise Band are freestanding.
It's not that the structure once put together holds itself up; it's that every part is free in terms of its gravitational load.
