Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is hosting an exhibition by Yoshitomo Nara.

I'd never heard of this guy before but they have dedicated nearly the entire second floor to his works.  

Here is a sampling.  What do you think?

This one is an entire wall covered with album covers (vinyl LP covers for you young wipper snappers).

Art is in the eye of the beholder. That said, I think it’s hilariously bad. My 6-year-old regularly produces “artwork” of the same caliber.

Must be in the Broad building. Everything else is flat!

72 views of this thread but only two responses.  :-(

I believe it was in the Broad building, the main building being under construction.

I went to LACMA two years ago and really enjoyed it, but they certainly had some more interesting pieces than that.

Haven't been there in years.  Guess I'll wait for the next exhibit before I try again.

After 103 Views of the thread and a nearly complete lack of interest in the art (only 1 of the four responses even mentioned the works), I suspect that is a commentary, in itself.

I'll comment - it looks horrible!  It's 1st grade looking art, which is probably the point, but rubbish nonetheless.
