Tour of THE BROAD
Since its much-heralded opening in 2015 the Broad has continued to be one of the leading cultural institutions in this culture-mad city. Even now getting an entrance ticket involves serious advanced planning. But we’ll be with Nancy so not only are we ‘in’, but we’ll be touring as special guests of the institution.
These include HAUSER WIRTH & SCHIMMEL; DENK; LALA; OVER THE INFLUENCE; MACCARONE; WILDING CRAN and PARRASCH HEJINEN to name but a few…and while we may not get to them all you can count on a well-curated--and very rewarding--list of visits.
DINNER :: BACO MERCAT
A lively downtown spot for causal and delicious dinning
FRIDAY APRIL 26
MOCA GEFFEN CENTER
Renovated by Frank Gehry, this former police car warehouse offers 40,000 square feet of exhibition space. MOCA GEFFEN is Los Angeles’s leading contemporary institution. Although their special exhibition isn’t yet on their website, their stellar permanent collection alone is reason enough for our visit.
The multi-faceted museum could alone justify our visit to the City of Angels with its outstanding modern and contemporary collections. Spring ’19 exhibitions include ‘Rauschenberg: The ¼ Mile’ and ‘Life Model: Charles White and His Students’
Our schedule includes time for a lunch break at LACMA’s RAY & STARK’S BAR
As past participants know, traveling with Weatherspoon means access to the studios of some of the most interesting and influential artists of our day. This trip is no exception with a visit scheduled with Alison Saar with other visits in the works.
SATURDAY APRIL 27
UCLA’s Fowler explores global arts and cultures with an emphasis on works from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas—past and present. On tap for our visit, we’ll tour the spring ’19 exhibition ‘New Orleans Second Line Parades: Photographs by Pableaux Johnson’
The Hammer, also under the aegis of UCLA, has the Armand Hammer Collection of works from the 16th to 20th century, but also importantly for us a focus on contemporary art. While at the Hammer we make time for lunch at the Hammer’s lovely ‘indoor/outdoor’ café.
Housed in a former Masonic Lodge, the MAF is the newest addition to LA’s already dazzling cultural scene. Founded by ‘Guess’ brothers Maurice and Paul Marciano the Foundation highlights the Marciano’s large and significant contemporary collection as well as special exhibitions and commissioned works.
PRIVATE COLLECTION VISIT
Gallerist Marc Selwyn will welcome us into his home for a very special tour of his singular collection of contemporary art.
DINNER: CAFÉ PINOT
We end with a little elegant alfresco fun at this tony spot just a few steps from our hotel
…and stay tuned. We may have another surprise or two up our sleeves…
