Cool Art 4 Hot Days at MOLAA by da-AL

On these heat rash inducing days when all I want to do is take showers and more showers, it’s extra nice to look at beautiful things within a cooled museum. Every time I visit the Museum of Latin American Art, I’m rewarded with something new, fun, and thought provoking.

This time I went for The Portfolio Series: Mondongo Argentine show.

My art-loving mom wanted to see it, especially since she’s from there. Lo and behold, the exhibit somewhat disappointing — great but tiny!

‘Somewhat’ only — because I was delighted to see oodles of other great stuff! Dunno how MOLAA decides to publicize one thing and not another — I’ll show you what I mean.

There’re Ramiro Gómez Jr.’s showy magazine photos cleverly brought up to the reality by the insertion of the workers (hover over or tap photos for titles) …

There’s historical political art …

There’s classically gorgeous stuff …

And then there’s Luis Tapia’s work! How can it be that he’s not given a dedicated calendar event listing when MOLAA’s dedicated an entire room to his work?! Is MOLAA afraid that this little museum, so beloved by all sorts of people, will get all the more popular and they won’t be able to accommodate everyone? (Hover over or tap pix to see titles.)

Who’s your favorite artist?

    I really enjoy MOLAA. I recently saw the Frank Romero retrospective there along with some interesting photographs of Frida Kahlo. I may have to get down and see this exhibit.

    Those Ramiro Gomez Jr pieces are my favorite. His and the others serve as a visual reminder of how important we all are in creating the type of society in which we live.

    I don’t like all the art you shared here from this particular artist. However I am intrigued by the ‘Chuy con su carga’ piece….
