Museum Admission: Monumental Consumption with El Anatsui

The Brooklyn Museum’s retrospective of El Anatsui’s works, entitled “Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui,” says and does a lot all at once: it’s high art (gaining international acclaim at the Venice Biennale in 2007 and quite literally, towering above viewers); it’s low art (made of repurposed trash and sometimes resting at and under visitors’ feet at the museum); and all said and done, it’s freaking beautiful.

Paper jams, leaking toner cartridges, formatting errors—there are few who haven’t been frustrated by the glitches and hiccups common to printers.

Museum Admission: Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum

There are world-class museums in Michigan and in this economy, some of them have had trouble keeping their doors open. Luckily, the threat of shutterings has started to disappear, and in the case of Michigan State University’s Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, serious cash is being dropped to ensure that Michigan remains host to some of the very best in art and culture. This $45 million museum ($28 million donated by the Broads) was dedicated November 10th to an art star-studded ceremony, and the attendance since then has continued to grow.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

I recently went back home to Kansas City and documented my favorite spots to see contemporary art while visiting. This past weekend I traveled west again, this time to Fort Worth, Texas. My trip was short so right after landing I drove directly to the the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. I had heard great things about the building and collection, both of which ended up meeting expectations.
