  • Broad Museum 221 South Grand Avenue Los Angeles, CA USA (map)

Los Angeles Chapter members RSVP here.

Let's go to "Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life," the first special exhibit at the new Broad Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. See the exhibit description below.

Tickets for the special exhibit run $12 and also allow you to see the 3rd floor's Inaugural Exhibition, but I'm going to do that on a different occasion (see other posting) and will propose that we go for a bite to eat after the exhibit, venue TBD.

To secure a ticket, you have 2 options:

1) buy your own ticket for 6pm, 6/23. There are still some available at this point, but act fast, as they're likely to sell out quickly. https://ticketing.thebroad.org/events/5966f886-683c-9205-2356-6708b83afb0b

2) Buy 1 of my 3 extra tickets for the same price. (Tickets go on sale the 1st day of the month ahead and I got online May 1 and purchased 4 tix at $12 each. There is no service charge).

Contact me through meetup mail to arrange to paypal me $12 or buy your own ticket before you rsvp "yes."

"The Broad’s first special exhibition will launch this June with a comprehensive survey of the work of artist Cindy Sherman. Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life is the first major museum show of Sherman’s work in Los Angeles in nearly 20 years, and the exhibition will fill The Broad’s first-floor galleries with more than 100 works drawn primarily from the Broad collection.

“Cindy Sherman’s work has been a touchstone for the Broad collection since Eli and Edye Broad first encountered it in 1982, and Cindy is the only artist in the collection whose work we’ve acquired so deeply and regularly, for more than 30 years,” said Joanne Heyler, founding director of The Broad. “There are 125 Cindy Sherman photographs in the Broad collection, the largest holding of her work in the world, and inaugurating our special exhibitions with an artist whose work sparked the Broad's deep commitment to contemporary art could not be more appropriate for us."

“She is one of the most important artists of our time, with a body of work that exemplifies the Pictures Generation—artists whose work came to fruition in the age of the proliferation of mass media imagery in the ‘80s, which is relevant to today’s image-saturated world,” said [guest curator Philipp] Kaiser.
