Sky-lit: Volume, Light and Sound at the Broad
BJNilsen & Yann Novak
Sunday, 15th February | 3–10 pm
General Admission Tickets: $10
The Broad is a new contemporary art museum being built by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles, opening 20th September 2015.
With construction of the building nearing completion, The Broad is offering the public an unprecedented glimpse into the unfinished museum on Sunday 15th February, 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.
“DTLA” is an audio installation by Swedish omposer and sound artist BJ Nilsen, who recorded sounds in more than a dozen locations to create what’s described as “an abstract audio landscape of downtown Los Angeles.”
After dark, “Stillness,” a work in sound and light by Los Angeles artist Yann Novak, will aim to immerse museum-goers in an “environment for reflection” about “the effect of climate and light on their physical and emotional states.”
