Museum of Broken Relationships

The Museum of Broken Relationships, with UCLA & Healing, present . . .

Therapeutic Writing Tour
at the Museum of Broken Relationships

Join us at the Museum of Broken Relationships for a guided therapeutic writing tour. The tour includes a walk through the Museum to find objects and stories that speak to your own experience of relationships that have come and gone—whether person, place, or thing. The objects and stories on display can help inspire closure for your own past relationships. After the tour, poetry therapy facilitators Jennie Linthorst will guide you through a journaling exercise to ground your insights and learning.

You may also bring your own memorabilia related to broken relationships to inspire your writing. This is a safe, supportive environment; no writing experience is necessary.

Join us on May 20 with Jennie Linthorst, MA, CAPF from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

Gary Simmons: Fade to Black

Much of Simmons’s work in this exhibit centers on his signature erasure techniques. Early in his career, he drew in white chalk on readymade chalkboards or directly onto slate-painted walls, then smudged the images with his hands. In recent years, he has adapted the process to canvas and large-scale wall works, such as “Blue Field Explosions” (2009), a monumental drawing in the stadium that is home to the Dallas Cowboys. Tuesdays – Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Sundays 11:00…

Adler Guerrier: Conditions and Forms for blck Longevity

Adler Guerrier (b. 1975, Port-au- Prince) is best known for his work in photography and printmaking that explores the poetics and politics of place. He examines the public space of the street as a site for civil discourse and disobedience and the more private realm of the home and yard as places for meditative observation and reverie—addressing both as political spheres. Guerrier’s new project for CAAM continues his investigation of history’s relationship to landscape, picturing what the artist has described…

Meleko Mokgosi: Bread, Butter, and Power

Meleko Mokgosi’s large-scale episodic painting cycle Bread, Butter, and Power forms the newest chapter in his ongoing series Democratic Intuition, which seeks to explore ideas about the many ways that democratic concepts influence our lives, loves, and relationships on macro- and micro-levels.
