MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JUNE 17–23, 2019!
Multiple art museum visits, cooking my own homegrown shishito peppers, backyard movie night with friends, and shooting more delicious food with Jill in Little Tokyo.
A mini exhibition featuring the recently conserved panel painting by 15th-century artist Ercole de’ Roberti. The show also includes details about conservation findings.
For some reason we agreed to all meet back up after our 6 hour game on Saturday and try one more time on a weeknight. We thought since we had learned new rules since then that we should try again and it’d be faster.
A visit to the Hammer Museum
From their site: “Since the late 1980s, Lucas has transformed found objects and everyday materials such as furniture, cigarettes, vegetables, and stockings into absurd and confrontational tableaux that boldly challenge social norms. The human body and anthropomorphic forms recur throughout Lucas’s works, often appearing erotic, humorous, fragmented, or reconfigured into fantastical anatomies of desire.”
“Bringing together more than 130 works in photography, collage, sculpture, and installation, Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel reveals the breadth and ingenuity of the artist’s practice. The exhibition addresses the ways in which Lucas’s works engage with crucial debates about gender and power–with a particular attentiveness to the legacy of surrealism—from her clever modifications to everyday objects to her exploration of sexual ambiguity and the tension between the mundanely familiar and the disorientingly strange.”
“Lucas has produced throughout her career, the exhibition features biomorphic sculptures including her stuffed-stocking Bunnies (1997–ongoing) and NUDS (2009–ongoing), the Penetralia series (2008–ongoing), and selections from her installations at the Freud Museum in London (2000) and the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2015). These works, which complicate inscribed codes of sexual and social normativity, have never been shown together in the United States.”
Tried out Tofu Ya, a soon tofu place on Sawtelle. Had a blast.
