LA’s Broad Contemporary Art Museum Features Mysterious Bulbous Object


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.

The 2×4 T-Shirt Shoppe at The Design Annual


Since we’re almost over the whole fake kerning lesson they gave us, we return again to the Underwire blog for a nice little story about 2×4 and how they’re making good across the sea. The Design Annual in Frankfurt starts tomorrow and 2×4 is one of the firms tapped to create a special exhibition for the conference. They’ll be selling the t-shirts you see above, but with a twist: When you buy one, you’ll be photographed with your pretty little head sticking out from the shirt, showing exactly how your face matches your great taste. This probably has some interesting implications, like investigations of identity and fashion or something, but we’re looking forward to seeing all the photos in the end product and making fun of how putting the shirts on messed up everyone’s hair.
