In short time, The Broad Museum atop Bunker Hill in Downtown has made itself an indispensable part of Los Angeles’s cultural landscape. This fall, it’s exhibiting a survey of the work of Iranian American artist Shirin Neshat, whose “stark and powerful work in photography, film and video addresses issues around migration and exile as well as the West’s preconceptions about Islamic culture.”
Within the confines of the honeycomb-covered building by Diller Scofido + Renfro, guests to The Broad will also find contemporary art galore from the likes of Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Barbara Kruger, John Baldessari, Kara Walker, Jeff Koons, and Jasper Johns. The infinitely Instagramable piece by Yayoi Kusama entitled “Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away” is back, but it requires separate reservations to enter. Guests can make that reservation once they’re inside the museum.
The Broad is open daily except Monday, and entrance is free. Admission to the Neshat exhibit costs $20, and requires advance reservations. Tickets can also be reserved in advance online for regular admission. Another option, however, is an on-site standby line for those who like to live spontaneously.
