Did you know that this season’s Jazz at LACMA is its twentieth? It is. And did you know that pianist Frank Strazzeri was the very first performer ever to take the Jazz at LACMA (neé Friday Night Jazz) stage? He was. Strazzeri returns tonight with his quintet.
Tomorrow night we are presenting a free screening of The Forgotten Space, directed by Allan Sekula and Noël Burch. The film looks at the impact of everyday people—farmers, truck drivers, factory workers—on the global economy. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Sekula, Bérénice Reynaud (co-curator, Film at REDCAT), and others.
Our exhibition California Design is into its second weekend, and Sunday would be a great day to check out the show, since designer Bernard Kester will be on hand for a conversation in the Art Catalogues Bookstore.
On Sunday night you can see the Capitol Ensemble perform works by Brahms during our free Sundays Live concert.
This three-day weekend is a great opportunity to take in many of the exhibitions we have on view, from California Design to Monet/Lichtenstein to Asco and more. And of course, Tim Burton, which is only on view for three more weeks!
