Levitated Mass, 2012, Michael Heizer, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, a 340-ton boulder placed above a 456-foot viewing pathway, a concrete trench in the ground. This is art for these times. The museum has been closed for a year. The grounds are deserted. But there’s this rock. Now it’s a metaphor. A heavy weight weighs on the world. It may crush us all. And now everything looks surreal. Get used to it. ~ Wednesday, February 17, 2021
