I try to visit Modern Art Museums when traveling. MOCA did not disappoint.
Manny Farber’s “One Day at a Time – Termite Art” exhibit was intense. It’s called termite art because the subject matter conveys the artists journey through ordinary objects displaying deep attention to details while eating its own boundaries.
I had a hard time with the violence woven into his paintings. That said, art is about evoking emotion.
“Honeymoon Killers” even by name is cringe worthy. Bliss and terror are juxtaposed in a single canvas. Once seen, you can’t unsee.
