The Broad at Home

Although our favorite museums and galleries are closed during this unusual time, The Broad is available to view from home so you can still get your contemporary art lover’s fix. There are amazing exhibitions right at your fingertips. Starting with the Infinite Drone: A Light and Sound Experience that is available on The Broad website. If you have a smart TV you can see and experience this show with remarkable sound quality and it feels like you’re there (but in the comfort of your own home and no standing in line). The featured show is the work of Christopher Wool, spanning from 1985 to 2015 using text, roller painting, and digital manipulation. The Broad’s curators Ed Schad and Sarah Loyer take you on a guided tour with fantastic shows by my favorite, John Baldessari, an old Venice local from my neighborhood. There is also a poetry series that you can watch one after another just like a poetry slam.
I know having the kids at home is a lot and having interactive family activities may help keep mom and dad sane, so don’t miss the step-by-step art project. You can catch everything on replay if you can’t watch it live. All of these are such innovative and inspiring ways to appreciate art in all of its forms. More exhibitions are on the horizon, featuring Jean-Michel Basquiat among others, giving us more to look forward to!
