I spent the weekend in LA with my dear friend Colin Dusenbury– Partner at Magni Design, a luxury residential interior design firm based in LA. We tend to talk a lot about space, innovation, design, and lifestyle- as we both live our work so closely.
On Friday Colin attended a dinner to welcome the new curator of the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art, Franklin Sirmans- alongside his client Jillian Michaels. Michael’s recently bought a piece by the legendary contemporary artist Ed Ruscha– also in attendance Friday. This got us talking about the idea of, “life” in the home. Does art bring all the elements of design together? But the even bigger question is- does it actually bring the interior to life? Art is energy-and has the power to hold a space like no other. It demands your attention, speaks volumes about your you/your host, and reminds you of the moments it represents. Art is the breath of the home.
Next time you are in LA- check out LACMA, as the new curator Sirman’s will be focusing on work created in the last four decades. To get your contemporary art fix in Manhattan head to The New Museum.
