During my recent visit to Los Angeles, I dropped by the MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in downtown. I highly recommend the experience, which is even conveniently located near an L.A. Metro station–a rare thing in the notoriously car-dependent city.
The current main exhibition was entitled, Real Worlds, featuring photography by Brassaï, Diane Arbus, and Nan Goldin.
Many other excellent pieces were on display, some installations even fully immersive as the audience walks through a forest of mechanical plants…
There was also an excellent full-on cave by the young artist Lauren Halsey which most impressed.
Lastly, the permanent exhibitions by legendary masters made for a true feeling of historicity. Real pop art by Lichtenstein, Dada by Max Ernst, a massive abstract work by Jackson Pollock, and those powerfully sized ones by Rothko.
