An assemblage sculpture of 202 vintage street light lampposts from the 1920s and 1930s, created by Chris Burden with the express intention to be placed in the empty plaza in front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, on Wilshire Boulevard. The cast iron lampposts range from 20 to 30 feet in height and were salvaged from Los Angeles neighborhoods. The installation is lit up from dusk to dawn and is solar-powered. Especially popular after dark, be prepared to drive a few rounds before finding a parking spot close enough.
And a pleasant surprise, as we wandered through the galleries of LACMA, those ones that remained open during the museum’s extensive renovation and expansion. The surprise was finding out that Magritte’s ”Ceci n’est pas une pipe” belongs to LACMA; for some reason, I was convinced it would belong to the permanent collection of the Magritte Museum in Brussels. What a fittingly surreal connection between my two favourite cities in the world!
