Last night Drake posted some rather colorful pictures on Instagram and if you’re anything like me you were a bit curious about their origin.
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the first picture Drake posted was, photo shoot. However, I read the caption and was clearly wrong. The first picture in the series was the below picture to which Drake added the caption “Turell x OVO”.
Currently at the Los Angeles County Museum Of Art (LACMA) there is an exhibit called ‘James Turrell: A Retrospective’ which explores about fifty years in the career of artist James Turrell.
“The exhibition includes early geometric light projections, prints and drawings, installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, and recent two-dimensional work with holograms. One section is devoted to the Turrell masterwork in process, Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape just outside Flagstaff, Arizona, presented through models, plans, photographs, and films.”
James Turrell was an important artist in the Southern California Light and Space movement of the 1960s and 70s. Below are two additional pictures of Drake enjoying the exhibit.
Drake has taken an interest in the arts over the years throwing out such names as Banksy and Warhol. There was also that time he attended an art gallery showing in LA and purchased the ‘Less Drake, More Tupac’ sign for $6,000.
For more information on the James Turrell exhibit and to buy tickets, you can visit the LACMA website. There is limited capacity and according to Oliver’s Instagram, you have to sign some sort of waiver to enter. Seems like it’s definitely worth it though.
