The Day is Upon Us! Welcome to the Broad

The wait is over. After a 15-month delay, ballooning costs, and lawsuits, the Broad Museum is finally set to open this Sunday in downtown Los Angeles. The new 120,000 square foot institution houses the postwar and contemporary art collection of Eli and Edythe Broad.

The Broad Collection has received some criticism for lacking a consistent vision, or for being dated, or for being too trendy. It is after all, a subjective collection reflecting the tastes of only two individuals. It would be surprising if it wasn’t uneven. Expecting to see mostly flashy, blockbuster artworks — perfect for our current moment of inflation and speculation — there are quite a few of those, but that’s not the whole story.
