The Broad has also announced a series of single-artist surveys drawn from the collection. Already up is Christopher Wool; to come are installations devoted to Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kara Walker, Roy Lichtenstein, Taskashi Murakami, and Warhol. Though all have been well-represented in previous Broad installations, the rotations promise many works never shown at the Broad before. The Wool display has 16 works, of which 13 are on view for the first time.
"Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog)" (Apr. 4–Aug. 16, 2020) will add L.A. artists John Baldessari, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, and Ed Ruscha. Kelley's 2005 installation Gym Interior will make its Broad debut.
A so-far untitled exhibition of new acquisitions is planned for Sep. 26, 2020–Feb. 14, 2021.
