Widely regarded as the greatest living artist in the world, Jasper Johns has not had a comprehensive survey of his work in Southern California in over 50 years. The Broad’s ambitious Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ show addresses this cruel absence and then some by meticulously bringing together 120 paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings. Some may know him for his iconic flag paintings, and there is a room of those, but this show will allow you to explore his ideas – six decades worth – in much greater depth.
Being able to experience and stand in front of classics of art history, such as Target (1961) and False Start (1959) is more than worth the price of the $25 admission for this special exhibition. But hurry, you have until May 13 to visit.
