I’m taking a typography class taught by a very cool teacher who suggested that we visit some art museums and local galleries in the area. So a friend and I went to some spaces in La Jolla last Friday.
Pleasure Point by Nancy Rubins / Untitled by Mauro Staccioli
San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla
Unfortunately, majority of the museum was closed because they were working on a new exhibit. But, we did take a walk through the sculpture garden and checked out the Photography in Mexico exhibit for free!
Going Out of Business by Mel Bochner
The Quint Contemporary Art is just a flew blocks away from the MOCA. The Troublesome Exhibit, which sadly ends tomorrow, featured some cool pieces including two of Matthew Brandt’s works made entirely out of bubble-gum.
Troublesome by Robert Barry / SpectroSonic – Red by Johannes Girardoni
Really enjoyed Girardoni’s piece which incorporates color, light, and sound.
Shadows by Marcos Ramirez Erre
After the gallery, we had a late lunch at IKEA and both ordered a salad, hazelnut chocolate, and swedish meatballs.
I also scored a $5 hamper!
Speaking of art and design, I visited SDSU for Tom Sachs‘ lecture about two weeks ago! Overall, it was a really insightful talk and it was great to know the reasons behind most of his grand projects, especially like that of the “Space Program”. He even wore the Nike Mars Yard shoes he designed!
