museum date at the Broad

If you haven’t heard by now the hype is gathering around downtown LA’s The Broad, a contemporary art museum by the philanthropist Eli Broad. Though you can get reservations on their online ticketing system, it’s booked out for weeks. We ended up waiting for about an hour strolling in 10:30am on a Sunday. From the infinity Room (get there early) to their Warhol/Hurst/Koons scattered through the rooms, it’s a VERY pop art-heavy collection. You can call it the Whitney equivalent of LA. But you just have to see it to see the amazing shots you can pull off across its humungous “honeycomb like” exterior. Inspired by the funky architecture of The Broad, I put together a look with volume and structure. Thank you for reading, hope you had an amazing holiday weekend! xx Melis Photos by Abel. the outfit: Fashion Bunker tunic (c/o) | Shopbop culottes (on sale here) | Saint Laurent booties (similar here) | Levis Denim jacket | Bag: Chanel

NOTES TO A FRIEND

Photo I took of Yuri on our road trip to Big Sur. 

Today I want to share a very special project I’m proud to be a part of. I’m in an amazing group of creative women in Los Angeles called Untitled Mondays. Our first collaborative effort will be an exhibition called Notes To A Friend: by Untitled Mondays.
Notes To A Friend began as a personal project by our friend Yuri Chung. A few months shy of her fourth year in remission from breast cancer, Yuri found out that it had returned in the form of metastasized Stage 4 cancer. Her response was “Notes To A Friend” — a series of notes she had started writing and sending to a friend about her experience throughout both cancers. Our show will feature original work by 50+ contributing artists (myself included) in response to the note they found most personally meaningful.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I would love to invite you to come see the exhibit which will include an art marketplace as well as live performances. All work will be available for auction to benefit a fundraiser for Yuri. See her story here.
