MOCA

Im out in LA for christmas, so i decided to head downtown and check out the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). The exhibitions currently running include the works of Louise Bourgeois (Till Jan 25th 2009) and Martin Kippenberger (Till Jan 5th 2009).
Bourgeois, currently based in NY, is an american surrealist and conceptual artist. Her most famous pieces are her 'spider scultures', or otherwise known as 'Maman', as well as 'The Blind Leading the Blind' and various cell installations.





'The Problem Perspective' exhibition from German artist Kippenberger shows a range of works from his life, from paintings to photography and sculpture. A lot of Kippenberger's works include self portraits, often depicting himself as awkward and grumpy.





I have to say, both of these are well worth the $10 and a look if your out in LA anytime soon. Check out more info on the artists and future exhibitions on the MOCA website (click here)
