With construction of the building nearing completion, The Broad is offering the public an unprecedented glimpse into the unfinished museum on Sunday, February 15, when two temporary art installations will activate the expansive third-floor gallery designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. For one day only, visitors will be able to see The Broad’s vast, column-free third-floor gallery in its raw state, before the art walls are put in place for the museum’s opening on September 20, 2015.
Artist BJ Nilsen’s sound installation DTLA, draws on the aural environment of Los Angeles. Just as The Broad’s porous architectural “veil” subtly interweaves natural light and glimpses of the urban streetscape of Grand Avenue into its galleries, Nilsen will bring the soundscape of downtown Los Angeles into The Broad. Stillness, the second installation featured as part of Sky-lit, will be activated after dark, and is a sound and light work by Los Angeles multidisciplinary artist Yann Novak. Stillness creates an immersive environment for reflection, inviting visitors to contemplate the effect of climate and light on their physical and emotional states.
