Secret Art

Last week, we told you about Koo Jeong-A’s Mountain Fundamental, an installation purposely removed from the rest of the Your Bright Future exhibition one floor up in BCAM. There are a couple of other works by Koo in the show, and one of them is even harder to find than Mountain Fundamental. In fact, I’d call it the most hidden object on view at LACMA. Next time you’re here, put on your Sherlock Holmes hat and try to find Sound around the Smell. Two clues: It’s placed on the exterior of the Art of the Americas Building; and your best bet is to look for the wall label. Chances are, you’ll find it before you find the (tiny) installation.
