It seems that the Broad has gotten off to a flying start. Los Angeles’ brand new museum of contemporary art invites two leading female artists, Cindy Sherman and Yayoi Kusama inside one of the most impressive contemporary art collections in the world.

About 2000 works by stars of pop ‘art and post-war painting: Koons, Hirst, Johns, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Basquiat, Haring, Ruscha, Beuys and his mentee Kiefer pave the way. And an entire room is dedicated to Cy Twombly.

Architecture studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro gave birth to a genius alveolar roof structure, the « veil », whilst smart windows on level 2 give the visitor a low-angle peeks on the storage unit.

The Broad couple holds the largest collection of works by Cindy Sherman. Imitation of Life, the museum’s first special exhibition, is an homage to her entire career. The artist’s sharp eye debunks misconceptions with her exquisite taste for scandalizing dressing ups. Her 1997 feature film Office Killer is screened inside the show and it’s a must-see -for whom can stomach it.
