Bruce Goff's organic architecture was made to complement the nature-inspired art in LACMA's Japanese Pavilion. Conservation practice has interposed a profusion of little Lucite boxes between Goff and old Japan. It's welcome news that LACMA is showing its spectacular new Haniwa Horse on a rectangular catwalk, vitrine-free, with no reflections. It becomes only the third free-standing statue in the Pavilion, joining two wood (human) Bosatsus of c. 1100 and later 12th century.
Also on view is the comparably rare set of Oribe plates (below), probably too pocketable to show without glazing.
