Ode to Muscle Beach

Inspired by stereotypical expressions of masculinity, Belgian artists Egon Van Herreweghe & Thomas Min have built a 1:1 replica of Santa Monica’s Muscle Beach in Kunsthal Gent. At the end of the exhibition the installation will be cut into pieces and spread over private gardens and sculpture parks.

Muscle Beach is located steps from the sand on Venice Beach Boardwalk about which Laila Frank made some interesting observations in her first blog of our new blog series California Dreamin’.
