Located above the main entrance of the Buzz Instants, the tympanum features life-size drywall sculptures adorning the west pediment of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. The scene depicts the battle between the Lapiths and the Centaurs that erupted at the wedding of Peirithoös, the Lapith King, when the drunken Centaurs tried to kidnap the Lapith women. The central figure of the group is the god Apollo, who is invisible to those involved in battle. His presence creates order in the midst of a chaotic scene.
I do not think that a museum needs to engage with pop culture in order to make itself interesting to museumgoers. Museums are already interesting and engaging with pop culture for its own sake is just a quick way to seem and become dated.
I have a passion for modern and contemporary art. I spend a lot of time in museums; I particularly like the Guggenheim, MoMA in New York or LACMA and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, for example. I cannot wait for the Louis Vuitton Foundation to open.
I enjoy art, architecture, museums, churches and temples; anything that gives me insight into the history and soul of the place I'm in. I can also be a beach bum - I like to laze in the shade of a palm tree with a good book or float in a warm sea at sundown.
