Last summer we explored architectural designs and plans for The Broad – See codylee.co/the-broad.
As the project nears completion, we had an exclusive sneak peek on February 15 in advance of the museum’s September 20 opening.
The art world was full of superlatives in 2014. New museums opened, fairs and auctions set records, and we added fairtigue, biennihilism, and crapstraction to our ArtSpeak vocabularies. With 2014 behind us, let’s review the best of the year and preview what’s ahead in 2015.
Weekend Reading, a summary of the week’s art news from codylee.co.
Highlights this week include museum expansions, auction headlines, and forthcoming exhibitions.
Los Angeles. We use superlatives to describe its population, economy, climate, and traffic, and its museums are no exception. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the largest in the Western United States. The Museum of Contemporary Art has one of the world’s most important collections of post-war art. The J. Paul Getty Trust is the world’s wealthiest art institution. LA has an impressive list of museums. Some have plans to expand, and there are a few entirely new ones in the works. Our next series of posts will provide an overview of notable museum projects in LA.
