Jacob Hashimoto’s “Gas Giant”

Hey, this post is going to be few words because the pictures are going to speak for themselves.
Did you know there was a MOCA exhibit in Beverly Hills? On Melrose to be more precise? Because I sure didn’t until I discovered this exhibit. This exhibit will just take your breath away. Hand made kites, hung up by a sting…I can’t imagine the time it took to create this.

Downstairs is all black and white, then you go up the stairs and *bam* the most spectacular vision. Even if you aren’t a museum nerd like I am, you will have the appreciate for the patience and vision Mr. Hashimoto had to create this masterpiece.

If I’m correct, this is a permanent exhibit? But don’t quote me on that. This is the MOCA at the PDC Art Catalogues, be sure to check their sight to make sure you see it in person! Until next time, I hope you all have a great day!


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.
