Over at the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) a new exhibit has just gone up featuring over 60 works by renowned surrealist Rene Magritte. There also another 60 pieces on display by the likes of Jeff Koons, Barbara Krueger, and Andy Warhol. Ironic Sans checked out the show this past week and here's what he's got to say about it-
Designed by John Baldessari, the museum space is transformed into a surreal experience worthy of the artwork it contains. The floor is a carpeted Magritte-esque sky. The ceiling is covered with images of freeways. The guards all wear suits and bowlers, like they’ve stepped out of a Magritte painting. The entrance to the exhibit is a larger-than-life replica of Magritte’s painting The Unexpected Answer. When you enter the exhibit, it’s like walking into Magritte’s world. For a different exhibit, something like this could have been distracting, cheesy, or overbearing. But for this exhibit, it was just right.
