While The Broad may be temporarily closed, we’re still committed to inspiring and fostering an appreciation of contemporary art. Through our new digital initiatives, we’ll be offering ways to experience #TheBroadFromHome, to find inspiration through music, poetry, and conversations (from a distance!), and to stay connected to one another. We’ll be debuting new content every week—sign up for weekly updates!
Infinite Drone series
Featuring deep cuts by celebrated musicians and sound artists from Los Angeles and beyond, the Infinite Drone series presents a new, contemplative way of experiencing The Broad’s most popular artwork. Experience an immersive environment of light and sound in the spirit of Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away. Take an opportunity to delve into the spiritual aspects of Kusama's exploration of eternity—paired with aural selections chosen curated by The Broad, including drone, electronic, ambient, and pop music.
UP CLOSE Curator Talks
In this video series featuring The Broad's curators Ed Schad and Sarah Loyer, we take a deeper look at artists in the Broad collection, which is notable for its dedication to the full arc of artists' careers and the depth of its holdings.
Interplay: Poetry and Art series
This series features poets working in a variety of styles to respond to specific artworks in the Broad collection to demonstrate the bond between visual art and literature. Some of the writings are new ekphrastic poems, and others are previously written works, chosen by the poet to pair with an artwork. As the textures, surfaces, palettes, and subject matter of the visual work intertwine with the poetry, the connections between these distinctly different mediums emerge, revealing how one complements the other.
Family Workshops at Home
Families will be able to create artworks at home inspired by artists from the Broad collection with The Broad’s new weekly art activity tutorials, which will be released every Friday morning on its social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube). Every Friday morning, The Broad will share a video with step-by-step instructions for an art activity that families can do together at home. The first tutorial, which will be released on Friday, March 27, will feature an activity inspired by the technique of Broad collection artist Mark Bradford, who is known for using discarded materials found on city streets such as advertisements, flyers, billboards, comic books, and more. Families can hunt for materials for this activity inside their homes to make a one-of-a-kind accessory.
