Futbol or Soccer, The Beautiful Game. Great exhibition at LACMA in Los Angeles, CA. From February 2 to July 20 2014. If you have the chance, don’t miss it.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Fútbol: The Beautiful Game (February 2-July 20, 2014), an exhibition examining the sport of fútbol, or soccer, as it is known in the United States. Featuring approximately 50 works by nearly 30 artists on the subject of fútbol—often referred to as “the beautiful game”—the exhibition looks at issues of nationalism, identity, globalism, and mass spectacle as well as the shared human experience between spectators from a multitude of cultures. In anticipation of the 2014 World Cup that takes place in Brazil this summer, LACMA’s exhibition considers the sport through video, photography, painting, sculpture, and large-scale installation.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you.
