The Broad,
New Contemporary Art Museum in Los Angeles,
To Open to the Public September 20th
Inaugural Installation to Feature Works from 2,000-Piece Permanent Collection
Built by philanthropists and longtime art collectors Eli and Edythe Broad, The Broad will welcome visitors from near and far with free general admission to an inaugural installation drawn from two collections of more than 2,000 works of contemporary art. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R), The Broad makes its home in the city’s burgeoning Grand Avenue arts corridor, across the street from architectural icons including Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
The new museum’s opening installation will be a predominantly chronological selection of masterworks from the Broads’ extraordinary personal art collection as well as that of The Broad Art Foundation. The installation will begin with works by major artists who came to prominence in the 1950s, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly. The Pop art of the 1960s—an area of great depth in the collections—will be represented through works by Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol, among others. Moving into the 1980s—the decade when The Broad Art Foundation was established—the installation will present a rich concentration of works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Sherman, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger and Jeff Koons. ...

Round Trip: Bicycling Asia Minor, 1891
December 14, 2014–April 5, 2015

image for the art show
In the summer of 1890, two young Americans, William Sachtleben and Thomas Allen, Jr., set off to circle the globe on new-fangled “safety” bicycles. Three years later, after pedaling some 18,000 miles on three continents, their harrowing tales of adventure made them international celebrities (“the greatest travelers since Marco Polo,” by one glowing account). Their timely championing of the bicycle helped to spark the great bike boom of the mid-1890s, which would transform cycling from an elitist, male-dominated pastime into a wildly popular means of recreation and transportation for all. Along the way, Sachtleben and Allen chronicled their adventures with two novel compact Kodak film cameras, heralding a new “democratic” era for photography, as well...

Give and Ye Shall Receive: Gift Giving in the Middle Ages
December 16, 2014 - March 15, 2015

image for the art show
In the Middle Ages, gift exchange helped people define their relationships to family and friends, to acquaintances and strangers, to God and to church. This exhibition, drawn from the Museum's permanent collection, examines models for giving found in scripture and in the lives of the saints, explores how gift giving functioned in medieval society, and highlights the special role of the medieval book as a gift ...

Lock, Stock and Barrel: Norton Simon’s Purchase of Duveen Brothers Gallery
October 24, 2014 - April 27, 2015

image for the article
Behind the beguiling Portrait of a Courtesan lies one of the many fascinating tales of Norton Simon’s determination to assemble a remarkable collection of art. The esteemed Duveen Brothers Gallery, once one of the largest and most successful dealerships of the international art market, had acquired this painting in the mid-1930s as a work by Titian (Tiziano Vecellio). Then as now, scholars reveled in discussing and disputing its authorship – whether by Titian, Giorgione da Castelfranco, Rocco Marconi, Giovanni Cariani, Bonifazio Veronese, or an imitator of any of the above. ...

Ross Tamlin "Beverly Hills" Enamel, Oil on Canvas, 33x36
Featured artists include Kate deLigne, Brenda Holzke, Shauna La, Ron Piller, and Ross Tamlin.
The exhibition examines the processes in which artists simplify real objects in varying degrees until the representation moves away from looking naturalistic. Stylization results from the materials used in the artwork as well as the artist’s conscious decision to emphasize one feature of an object more than another. Working from a realistic image toward an abstraction expresses the visual world in a simplified, reduced and fragmented direction. ...

CRAIG TAYLOR, "Without the Transistor of Reason", 2015
Oil on canvas, 72" x 54"
The paintings in Craig Taylor’s second CB1 exhibition, "Enface" combine the language of abstraction with the format of a portrait or bust. Systems of marks traverse intensely layered surfaces, coalescing into an image of the bust as passages of thick paint are scraped, layered, blocked out, and worked up into a complex viewing experience. ...
