Bringing added cultural bite to Downtown Los Angeles, the Broad opened next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2015 and was financed by philanthropist Eli Broad.
The cube-shaped building is a head-turning architectural statement by the Diller Scofidio + Renfro firm, with a skin comprising 2,500 rhomboidal concrete panels reinforced by fibreglass.
On three levels, The Broad is vast and covers modern and contemporary painting, photography and sculpture from the mid-20th century to the present.
Broad has put together a reserve of more than 2,000 works by 200 artists, and his foundation makes new acquisitions by the week.
Among the many luminaries are Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Cy Twombly, Ed Ruscha and Jeff Koons, while the museum holds the largest collection of Cindy Sherman works in the world, with 129 pieces as of 2019. In spring 2019 Yayoi Kusama’s roaming Infinity Mirror Rooms installation had a stint at The Broad.
