Billowing upwards in LACMA’s Ahmanson Building is Tony Smith’s black minimalist sculpture “Smoke.” Towering 24 feet high and 48 feet in length, visitors are allowed to walk underneath this monumental installation. This colossal sculpture is confined but seemingly struggling to escape the building, its hexagonal nature towering above the passing visitors.
