Los Angeles certainly isn’t suffering from a dearth of museums dedicated to various and sometimes waxy subjects, but with its just-announced series titled “Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at the Broad,” the contemporary art museum known as the Broad (located downtown) is promising an objective summer-long draw subsequent to its grand opening last September. The museum will host its first exhibition centered around photographer Cindy Sherman beginning June 11, and more or less in conjunction, outside curators Bradford Nordeen and Brandon Stosuy will have musicians come in one Saturday night a month until September for performances in any of the “various spaces” dedicated to prolific art consumption. You’re correct that this would potentially implicate the entire museum, in this case.
The Saturday shows of Nonobject(ive) have themes ranging from Cindy Sherman’s oeuvre to underground rave culture and again to the atmosphere of urbanity, and the following musicians will be featured… not necessarily on the same dates: SOPHIE, Elysia Crampton, Julianna Barwick, Vessel, Jlin, Cindytalk, The Haxan Cloak, Richard Hell, Perfume Genius, and more. Potential attendees should be especially excited for the show on September 24, because miraculous circumstances have led to SOPHIE, Crampton, Barwick, and Vessel all being musically present that night. Only the aroma of a shared favorite food might otherwise compel their congregation.
The Broad website naturally has all the information you need regarding the first “summer happening” featuring Perfume Genius, and it’s important to note that you aren’t able to purchase tickets for next month’s Nonobject(ive) show until the 15th of the current month. So, July’s event won’t go on sale until June 15, for instance. Tickets get you access to the breadth of Broad’s artistic offerings.
