René Magritte

Currently at LACMA museum on Wilshire and Fairfax, there's an exhibition of a renown surrealist artist, René Magritte, who painted the famous painting "The Son of Man" (posted here). The exhibition features 68 works by Magritte and an equal number by 31 contemporary artists, including Marcel Broodthaers, Vija Celmins, Robert Gober, Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein and Ed Ruscha. It will be held from November 19, 2006 – March 4, 2007. Unfortunately, you will have to pay for the admission ticket: For student (with ID) the ticket cost $14 on weekdays and $17 on weekends. The price after 5pm is $12 on weekdays and $15 on weekends.

thanks fahmai. I (mostly) enjoyed this exhibition - but let's try to connect this to class somehow. I actually think this has a great deal to do with many of the topics we will be discussing later this semester - how to define innovation and creativity, remixing and recombination, the notion that all modern art relies heavily on homage/sampling/borrowing from others.

I agree with Marissa. I am actually going to the the LACMA with my Arts and Letters class to see these exhibits. I'll relay to the class my experience.
