Urs Fischer at MOCA

Ever since I saw the ads for this exhibit go up around my neighborhood, I’ve been dying to check it out. This exhibit runs until August 19th so you all have some time to make it before it goes away.

MOCA describes Fischer’s work as “fluctuating and unpredictable” and it really was. One room you had mirrored boxes with images printed on them. Images ranging from soy sauce, a calculator to a staple gun.

The following room had a house made out of bread, oversized raindrops and a cat looking at an oven. Kind of reminded my of my cat (although my cat doesn’t look, as so much tries to hide in cramped spaces).

What I like so much about MOCA is that if you buy a pass for one, you can visit the other one too. It’s about a 20 minutes walk, close to Little Tokyo. The Geffen was filled with clay sculptures. Apparently they had about 1000 patrons come in and build items out of clay. Walking through, it felt like you were walking in the ruins of an old city. My favorite was the gigantic Jabba the Hut and a bowl of ramen.

I’m such a museum junkie. I love to see what people come up with. Occasionally contemporary art gets lost with me, but I have an appreciation for those who think outside the box. The Stanley Kubrick exhibit is ending this month at LACMA, and so I cant wait to see what they replace it with. Well, thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all next time.
