LACMA – Metropolis II

by Wendy on January 24, 2012

Amazing kinetic sculpture by Chris Burden. We happened to visit on a day the miniature cars were turned off, but we were still impressed by the scale of this elaborate roadway system. Well worth the trip! California Design “Living In A Modern Way” was the next stop featuring lots of objects from mid century modern design. We sat at the video station and watched interviews for a few of the designers. Crazy Deborah Sussman was one of our favorites. Last stop was the Maria Nordman installation FILMROOM:SMOKE, a double projection that smelled strangely like cigarettes. Or maybe it was the big white chair?
