MoCA

Playing: Miss America-Something Corporate
Reading: Harper's Bazaar September 2013
In the last few days of summer break, I get into these mad frenzies in which I try to cram in as much exploring as possible. It mostly consists of me running to Los Angeles to see enough to get me through the dreadful school year. MoCA recently had an Urs Fischer exhibit, so I took a trip down there to take a look. I ate at Lemonade, which is located right on the museum's property. The Watermelon Rosemary Lemonade was so refreshing and all of the side dishes I got were excellent. The Israeli Couscous was my favorite, but the Curry Chicken Salad and Tandoori Chicken Salad were also very good.
Unfortunately, the main building for MoCA was in the process of moving in new exhibits, which meant there wasn't much to look at that I had not seen already. At the Geffen Contemporary, another MoCA building, they had some of Urs Fischer's work. MoCA basically let 1,500 people in to sculpt whatever they wanted with Urs Fischer and this is the result.
In the adjoining room, MoCA, along with several other museums, is having a display on architecture throughout the world. They had a lot of models of homes and buildings along with sketches. If I ever become a billionaire, I will help stimulate the economy by building a home as spectacular as these ones.
I love art that you can stand in because it feels like an artist's playground. This particular piece was surreal with it's pastel swirling explosions. I likes how inside it was like an explosion of paint, while the outside has these neon cutouts sticking out like feathers. This was right by the architecture exhibit and there were two other pieces you could walk into. I really would like to go back to MoCA, when they have exhibits other than their permanent ones on display. It's kind of expensive to see only one floor of work, so you have to go to the Geffen Contemporary to get your money's worth.

    1. For me, it's the start of school that limits how much I can do. I can see how colder weather would interfere with your outdoor activities in Canada though.

  13. I'll need to check out MoCa when I head back to LA. That last piece looks so cool- like you said, it's another experience being able to stand in a piece.
