Another Monday has arrived, forcing the weekend into the memory and the week into sharp focus. Though work is the primary fulcrum of weekday activities, we hope that you will take some suggestion and participate in some extracurricular fun.
If you didn't hear about it over the weekend, the Robert Smithson exhibit opened at MOCA. This is the first complete retrospective of Smithson's work, a man "known then and now as a pioneer of earthworks, an influential minimalist sculptor, and a brilliant commentator on contemporary art. This first complete retrospective of Robert Smithson’s work features documentation and examples of his famous objects and earthworks as well as largely unknown paintings, collages, and drawings from 1957 to 1963 that recast his entire career in a new light." You can see the exhibit at MOCA at California Plaza until December 13th.
