Something Resembling Truth / Jasper Johns
Through May 13, 2018 / The Broad

Jasper Johns

On view at The Broad, Jasper Johns: Something Resembling Truth, a collaboration with the Royal Academy in London, features more than 120 of Jasper Johns’ most iconic and significant paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings, many never before exhibited in Los Angeles. With loans from international public and private collections, including significant works from the Broad collection, the exhibition traces the evolution of the artist’s six-decade career through a series of thematic chapters.

 

The exhibition encompasses the full range of Johns’ materials, motifs and techniques—including his unique use of encaustic (heated beeswax) and found-material collage in paintings—and the innovations he has achieved in sculpture and the graphic arts by expanding the possibilities of traditional media. Johns’ use of accessible images is thoroughly examined, seen continually transformed through the artist’s engagement with a wide range of human experiences. In a departure from a retrospective approach, Johns’ artistic achievements are illuminated through the juxtaposition of early and late works throughout the exhibition.

 

Jasper Johns

One of the most influential and important artists to emerge in the 20th century, and one of America’s greatest artists, Johns has been seminal to the Broad collection. His work emerged with and has influenced numerous other collection artists represented in depth, including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari and Sherrie Levine.
