We’re counting the days until the opening of LA’s new museum, the Broad Contemporary at LACMA (or BCAM), which officially launches February 16. Actually, lots at LACMA is changing: a new Renzo Piano building, a new logo by 2×4, and new art from the collection of Eli Broad, who just decided he actually doesn’t want to make the Broad Museum the permanent home of the Broad collection. Oh well, the building and logo are nice.
The online countdown is full of teasers, like shots of Chris Burden‘s lamp installation, Richard Serra‘s two sculptures and Robert Irwin‘s palm garden. But this thing confounds us. What in the world could be inside that bizarre, odd-shaped covering? Guess we’ll have to wait until February 16.
