Hollywood Boulevard on the eve of the election. A man in a Donald Trump mask is gyrating on the sidewalk with a sign that reads ‘Let me take a Trump dump on America’. Nearby, a rival parades a placard of a naked, handcuffed Hillary Clinton. It’s a consoling thought that in around 32 hours, this weird, year-long pantomime will finally be over.
‘Art is the highest form of hope,’ a famous painter once said, so on election day I go to LACMA to see the James Turrells. Hopefully some nice, trippy light installations will take my mind off the madness. You don’t get much more ‘LA’ than James Turrell.
