Museum Trips: Mom & Mich Date @ MOCA
A little time set aside for art appreciation for girls bonding while the boys went to Japanese town to check out some anime stuff, thus maximizing our drive to LA. I was really hoping to see Henri Matisse’s works displayed but it turned out it’s Warhol’s works on exhibit. There was confusion somewhere. I became curious before going there to see Andy Warhol’s controversial Shadows because of the reviews.
Now, the critic, looking closely and examining this particular canvas and processing what makes it an artwork. Imagine 102 canvases bigger than Michelle in size, displayed in the main hall. She didn’t say a thing.
The show was big and bold. Bold in the sense that a famous and influential artist like Warhol, would create something like that, humongous monochromatic series of silkscreen paintings. He likes to awaken people’s curious minds. I read somewhere that he likes boring things. That makes it interesting.
A pile of glass with broken pieces on display.
This generated a look that only a mother could understand what’s going on in her mind and prompted a response from a mother that only a daughter could comprehend. Another piece of controversy?
She asked me to buy this book from the museum store. A watermelon lemonade ended our trip to the museum.
