Justin Timberlake Talks Art At LACMA
For a feature in the July issue of Vanity Fair, Justin Timberlake was interviewed during a trip to LACMA, and the LA Times has some choice quotes on the entertainer's relationship with art:
On getting turned around in a maze-like Richard Serra sculpture at LACMA that day: "I feel like this is a bad dream I might have had." On buying a painting by Banksy: "I split it with a friend, so we each get to keep it for a little while." (Banksy was also a punch line for him earlier this year: he joked "I'm Banksy" when presenting the Academy Award for best animated feature.)
Timberlake is no stranger to the gallery scene, having been the subject of a 2008 exhibition at Oliver Kamm/5BE gallery in New York. He's also been the muse for a number of--let us say--admirers, who might have a little further to go before a Manhattan solo show.
