The exhibit we saw at the museum featured art from emerging L.A. artists entitled "L.A. Now". The outfit I am wearing features a new skirt from H&M which sort of makes me feel like a flamenco dancer. Also, how is it that whenever I go to a museum, the sticker that they give you always matches my outfit? The pink of the sticker is the perfect complement to the pink in my skirt!
So the next part of this post is something that I am just going to call "Art or Not Art?" A few years back when my husband and I went to the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla, we came across a portable phone mounted on the wall in the museum. My husband insisted it was art (and he hates contemporary art) while I scoffed, assuming he was being flip. My response was "of course it's not art, it's just a phone!". Well, much to my surprise, it turned out to be part of the exhibit. Go figure!
So take a look at the photos below. Do you think I am standing in an art installation bellow or just a pile of crap, I mean Styrofoam? Art or not art? What say you?
If you guessed not art, you would be correct. I honestly thought this was part of the exhibit as it had a little sign telling you that you had to consent to having your likeness video recorded if you entered. Well, it was not really anything, or maybe it was the beginning of something not fully formed? Whatever it was, the security guard told us we couldn't take pictures here, so shhhh... don't tell anyone.
I hope you enjoyed my trip to the Hammer in Westwood. If you would like to see some interesting art and installations, or ponder the mysteries of "what is art?" this is the place to go!
