Monday Melbourne Roundup - Los Angeles and London edition

Well peeps, my travels have begun and I am knackered. Man have a eaten a lot of food over the past week but reviews will just have to wait for the singular posts. I will say that its been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

Out.

MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) Los Angeles.


This is a gorgeous building nestled into the LA Design Centre complex (which is an astonishing building in its own right). The exhibition is free and it is "LAS VEGAS STUDIO: IMAGES FROM THE ARCHIVES OF ROBERT VENTURI AND DENISE SCOTT BROWN". Denise Scott and Robert Venturi took their photography students to Vegas every year for a field trip from 68 to 72 and thisis a collection of the images. Lush and soaked in dusty glamour the photos are beautiful. Highly recommend.
