The Broad presents “Creature”

Event Description

This fall, The Broad will present “Creature”, a free general admission installation opening November 5 that will fill the museum’s first-floor galleries with more than 50 works presenting approaches to figuration and selfhood in the Broad collection. From slick avatars and popular icons to images rooted in mythology and animal instincts, the installation will feature works by over 25 artists including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ellen Gallagher, Leon Golub, Jenny Holzer, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, and Andy Warhol plus Thomas Houseago’s Giant Figure (Cyclops), 2011, which will make its U.S. debut.

Ranging from artworks that examine the human body, to others that allude to a physical presence outside of the artwork itself, Creature offers an array of lenses through which to view the human experience, some scientifically based and others drawing inspiration from cultural representations of how living things change over time.

This exhibition will be accessible with free general admission. Timed tickets for November will be available for advance reservation beginning October 1 at noon PT at ticketing.thebroad.org.
