Annenberg Space for Photography – CenturyCity Plaza

The Annenberg Space for Photography is not a well-known museum in Los Angeles. Located in the Century City Plaza, the Space is a collection for digital and print photography known for its cultural importance.

A relatively new museum, the Annenberg draws big crowds with its provocative photography. I went to the exhibition “Beauty Culture” on views of beauty around the world’s cultures and different frameworks. It was interesting to see that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Oh, there was a chair where you can use the iPad for envisioning traditional Western beauty on your photo.

The “Who Shot Rock & Roll” was one of the most interesting exhibits I’ve attended. The exhibition highlights photographers who took the most famous photos of our most famous musicians throughout the years. I saw a Polaroid photograph of Madonna at an apartment party!

IRIS Nights Lecture Series (Thursday evenings from 18:30 to 20:00) at the Annenberg highlights current exhibits.

Located in Century City Plaza, the surrounding courtyard along with the Annenberg collaborated in many outdoors events. I attended a concert hosted by a local radio station KCRW (Independent Music and National Public Radio “NPR”) with Richard Melville Hall or “Moby” in 2012. His music and DJ-ing turned the courtyard into one large dance floor while people viewed “Who Shot Rock & Roll” at the Annenberg.

Sign up for their events. I went to the Cuba event and they had a band a free drinks/food.
