Jasper Johns: Something Resembling Truth
At The Broad
Since opening its doors in September 2015, The Broad has made its blue-chip collection – formed by namesake founders Eli and Edythe Broad – available to the city of Los Angeles. Now, the museum is playing host to equally as influential traveling exhibitions such as “Jasper Johns: Something Resembling Truth,” which opened in last week, marking the first major survey of the American Artist’s work in the Los Angeles area since a groundbreaking exhibition at the Pasadena Museum of Art in 1965. In collaboration with The Royal Academy of Art, which hosted the exhibit in fall 2017, more than 120 are on view of Johns’ iconic paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures spanning the artist’s six-decade career. The show encompasses a complete range of Johns’ material and techniques, including his use of found objects and collage. A beautiful show celebrating one of the greatest living artists and a definite Must Go for anyone living in or visiting Los Angeles between now and mid-May.
