Right now, half the tables are missing from underneath LACMA’s BP Pavilion, yards away from Chris Burden’s army of street lamps. They’re gone because Christine Corday has installed two mammoth steel curves from her Protoist series there. The artist, who’s from the East Coast but lived in both Spain and Japan for years, will let these sculptures rust, accumulate fingerprints and react to the weather. In certain places, it looks like some animal has been gnawing away at the steel. It’s a lot less sleek than art that’s been in and around that pavilion in the past.

Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 23. Continues through April 5, 2014
(Expired: 04/05/15)
