Snow day is the perfect day to remind me that I could be In LA swimming in the contemporary art museum there...
Actually, I want to see this whole exhibit, look at the pictures it looks magical to hang out in, and most of these pieces seem to be credited as being conceived years and years ago and re-fabricated in 2010. I want to like go on a dream date and have a birthday party in this exhibit I like the looks of it so much. I hope it's up for months and months so I can catch it if I get to plan a trip to visit my family!

Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space from MOCA on Vimeo.
MOCA Senior curator Alma Ruiz leads us through Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space; the first museum exhibition to situate pioneering Latin American artists among the international canon of those working with light and space. The exhibition presents Latin America as the source of new ideas about the nature and function of art through the re-creation of important large scale installations by five highly regarded and influential artists: Carlos Cruz Diez, Lucio Fontana, Julio Le Parc, Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida, and Jesús Rafael Soto. The exhibition aims to illuminate the field by expanding the dialogue surrounding light-and-space practices in contemporary visual art beyond the California tradition of the late '60s and '70s, to include pivotal Latin American impulses expressed more than a decade earlier.
