“…the 30-year-old projection appears to me today strangely familiar and at once unbearably relevant. More than ever before, the meaning of our monuments depends on our active role in turning them into sites of memory and critical evaluation of history as well as places of public discourse and action.” – #KrzysztofWodiczko Starting tonight: Wodiczko’s iconic large-scale, 1988 outdoor projection will be restaged for our new exhibition #BrandNew80s ! On view Feb. 13-15 from 6:30pm-9pm, free and open to the public!
“My idea was to transform the Hirshhorn’s lobby into an artwork that symbolizes what is unique about both the building and the collection. Ideally, this piece is sculpture, furniture and conceptual art, all at the same time.” – #HiroshiSugimoto 🎀✂️ Preview the space, including Dolcezza Coffee & Gelato #atHirshhorn , this week during special evening hours from 6:30-9pm, Feb. 13-15. The museum will stay open late to celebrate the opening of both "Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s" and a three-night-only restaging of an iconic 1988 outdoor projection created by artist #KrzysztofWodiczko .✨ The lobby and café reopen on Feb. 23.🗓
Hello from @LACMA ! We’re taking over the Hirshhorn’s Insta story today to celebrate the work of #MarkBradford .
#SneakPeek 👀: After two years of design and three months of construction, we’ll unveil our transformed lobby Friday, Feb. 23, reimagined by acclaimed Japanese artist #HiroshiSugimoto 🎉 The new space will also feature the specialty coffee bar Dolcezza Coffee & Gelato at Hirshhorn (@dolcezzagelato ) ☕️🍨 The artist-made furnishings are inspired by the fundamental shape of the Hirshhorn - the circle - and the ways in which the shape appears in nature. Including: twin glass-top tables crafted from the roots of a 700-year-old Japanese nutmeg tree and chairs inspired by the helicoid shape of DNA 🌀 Preview the space during our special evening hours Feb. 13, 14 and 15, 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m., we’ll stay open late to celebrate the opening of both "Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s" and a three-night-only restaging of an iconic 1988 outdoor projection created by artist Krzysztof Wodiczko. #atHirshhorn
Happy Birthday to #OlafurEliasson ! 🎂 Imagine what it would be like to stand inside of a kaleidoscope with Eliasson’s “Your oceanic feeling,” made of hand-blown colored-glass triangles.✨ This work was just installed as part of Hiroshi Sugimoto’s transformation of our lobby, opening this month! #atHirshhorn 📷: @amy_bower
Opening Feb. 14: “Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s,” an expansive exhibition exploring the pivotal moments in the 1980s when artwork became a commodity and the artist, a brand. The nearly 150 works in #BrandNew80s examine the origins and rise of a new generation of artists in New York City who blurred the lines between art, entertainment and commerce, a shift that continues to define contemporary art today.
