Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog)

Nov 18, 2023 — Apr 7, 2024 | The Broad Museum, Los Angeles, California, US

Alex Israel is part of the exhibition 'Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog)', at The Broad Museum, Los Angeles, California, US.

The Broad is pleased to announce Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog), a free exhibition drawn entirely from the Broad collection, showcasing works by Los Angeles-based artists. Drawing its title from a piece by John Baldessari, the exhibition often oscillates between local takes on a city in flux and turmoil, and reflections outward to evolving issues of artmaking and global concerns. Running from November 18, 2023 to April 7, 2024, the exhibition will be on view throughout the museum’s first floor galleries and includes the work of 21 artists across varying generations who were raised in the Los Angeles area, such as Doug Aitken and Lari Pittman, or relocated to the city, including Catherine Opie and Mike Kelley. Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog) is made possible in part by generous support from East West Bank, Leading Partner of The Broad for six years.
