ARTWORKS TO POSE WITH AT THE BROAD
The Broad is a new contemporary art museum, now open on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. Reserve free tickets to The Broad online at thebroad.org/tickets to try out the below during your visit!
- •Yayoi Kusama, Infinity Mirrored Room - The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, 2013Once you’ve made a timed reservation for your visit to Yayoi Kusama’s celestial light installation in The Broad lobby, you have 45 seconds all to yourself to be immersed in the work. Our suggestion is to keep your phone down for the first 30 seconds to fully experience the depths of infinity then strike a pose and snap a photo before you exit.
- •Jeff Koons, Balloon Dog (Blue), 1994-2000Despite looking like a balloon animal, this work is actually made of stainless steel. A visitor favorite is to give the work an illusion of weightlessness by pretending to hold the dog’s tail with two pinched fingers.
- •Christopher Wool, Untitled, 1990Lift up one leg, clench your fists, and motion your arms to simulate the act of running (don’t actually run in the galleries though, you might trip!) in front of one of Christopher Wool’s “Untitled” panels that read “Run” and “Dog” when you first arrive at The Broad’s third floor gallery.
- •Robert Therrien, Under the Table, 1994Artist Robert Therrien loves taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. “Under the Table” in the third-floor gallery is guaranteed to make any visitor feel like a child again. Visitors turn into miniatures by simply standing near this work.
- •Charles Ray, Fall '91, 1992This one is easy. Hand on hip and #ootd ready, pose near Charles Ray’s massive 8 foot tall mannequin “Fall ’91.” This work is a favorite of The Broad’s founding director, Joanne Heyler, so dress to impress.
