I like to think of myself as an amateur art aficionado. People always diss LA for it’s lack of art and culture, but on the contrary, I find that there are lots of wonderful art museums and exhibits around the city that are just waiting to be explored. A few of my favorites are LACMA, MoMA, the Getty and the Annenberg Space for Photography.
The latter is quite special to me because it features beautiful photography in such an up-close and intimate space. Emerging is the newest exhibit to take over the Annenburg Space for Photography over in Century City, and I had the privilege of getting a sneak peek.
The show is comprised of more than 90 emerging photographers from around the world and are categorized by theme, including “Capture vs. Perception, “Nature and the Environment,” and “Style,” to list just a few of my favorites. There are lots of beautiful pieces in the collection, I could have gotten lost in here for quite awhile. Added bonus? Admission is free.
Another perk — their is a video component called Emerging Experience, a multimedia installation that brings the aforementioned exhibition to life, along with a cool Gravity Room that basically begs for an Instagram picture. There are three different themes that will run, starting with Emerging Taste June 6 – July 12 (which I saw,) Emerging Sound July 13 – August 16, and Emerging Style August 17 – September 20. This is free as well, so if you’re are in LA anytime from now until late September, you’ll be missing out if you don’t stop by!
