The Sympathetic Imagination

17 Feb

This past weekend I saw The Sympathetic Imagination  by Los Angeles-based artist Diana Thater. The exhibition is a survey of her film and video work. I’d read about it and had been wanting to see it and am so glad I finally did.

The LACMA website describes the works as, “…dynamic, immersive installations.” It goes on to say that they “challenge and invert accepted positions and realities through the deployment of color, movement, scale, and architecture.” It is an extremely accurate description. The colors and images make you feel fully immersed and as though you become one with them. I can’t recommend this exhibition enough.

If you live in LA or plan to  visit, go see it. It’s on view until April 17.Luckily for me, I am member  of the museum and can return again to see it as many times as I want before its run ends.

My holidays were great and I truly and fully enjoyed my break.  It always takes me by surprise how quickly vacation ends! But now it’s back to reality and back to work!

This past weekend Nick and I went to LACMA and saw the Stanley Kubrick exhibition which was quite impressive and extensive. I highly recommend it.  We also saw Bodies and Shadows: Caravaggio and His Legacy, works by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio and other artists whose work was influenced by him. On view were also Robert Mapplethorpe: XYZ  and Walter De Maria: The Sculpture 2000. I absolutely loved The Sculpture 2000. Here are photos I took  from our day. I hope you enjoy them. If you live in the L.A. area, I suggest you check out all these exhibitions!
