Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog) showcases the work of iconic Los Angeles artists John Baldessari, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger and Ed Ruscha. Each of these artists has contributed to a wide-reaching and global art dialogue; they have also played key roles in shaping the art scene of Los Angeles and the city’s rise as a global arts capital. The Broad’s presentation includes nearly all the works in the Broad collection by each of these artists, including the immersive multimedia installation, Gym Interior (2005), by Kelley and the four-channel video installation, Twelve (2004), by Kruger, as well as mini-retrospectives of the work of Baldessari and Ruscha. The exhibition’s title is drawn from a monumental 1985 Baldessari work in the Broad collection, Buildings=Guns=People: Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog).
Featuring 81 artworks (more than half are on view for the first time at The Broad), the exhibition includes:
