Frank Gehry's Mad Tea Party
|Frank Gehry, Wishful Thinking (detail), 2021|
The Los Angeles Philharmonic will present Wishful Thinking, a sculptural installation by Frank Gehry. A walk-thru, oversized imagining of the Mad Hatter's tea party, it is also a sort of auto-retrospective. The sculptural forms of Gehry's Lewis Carroll characters evoke several of the architect's key projects: the Museum of Pop Culture, Seattle (2000); the Marqués de Riscal Hotel, Elciego, Spain (2006); the Biomuseo, Panama City (2014).
Wishful Thinking will be in Walt Disney Concert Hall's BP Hall Feb. 19 through Mar. 20, 2022. Admission is free but restricted to concert ticket holders and Disney Hall tour groups.
