LACMA: Tim Hawkinson

Filed under: a group of folks,neat! @ 13:20

I went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Arts for the first time Saturday. A five dollar student ticket is a deal that can’t be beat, unless you go after five o’clock. Then it’s free.

But Bonnie and I decided to go at around three, and it was an afternoon very well spent. My time was a little limited (Preskill was hosting a soirée that evening), but we managed our goal of seeing the impressive Tim Hawkinson exhibit though were unable to check out any of the others. Perhaps it was best to only see one exhibit, anyway. Regardless, it was more than worth it.

I won’t bother to describe the artist or his works (I’d have taken pictures, but I got yelled at for attempting to do so). Anything I could say would either be ill-educated, or not nearly as humorous as the statement “Tim Hawkinson, considered by many to be a phenomenon within and beyond the art world” taken from LACMA’s above-linked press release. I’ll just say that the exhibit is well worth checking out, especially if you’re into the ideas surrounding man vs. machine vs. nature discussions. That or latex.
