LACMA welcomes the legendary Trisha Brown Dance Company this Saturday at 4 pm as the dance series In Plain Site continues its run on our museum grounds. Organized by CAP-UCLA, this program traces Brown’s choreographic exploration of sculpture, architecture, and spatial design in dialogue with visual arts. At LACMA, the performances will start at Chris Burden’s Urban Light and move progressively toward Zev Yaroslavsky Plaza.
Yamaha Pianist David Kaplan has been praised for his “grace and fire” by the Boston Globe, and by the New York Times for “striking imagination and creativity.” Performing widely as a soloist and chamber musician, Kaplan's recent appearances include the Barbican in London, Seattle’s Town Hall, and Miami’s Arscht Center with Itzhak Perlman. Listen to his riveting sounds this Sunday in the Bing Theater.
Don’t miss your chance to see two of LACMA’s exhibitions before they close on Sunday.
TV on Film focuses on television’s transformation. Recalling the television set as our sole image provider seems quaint and nostalgic in the internet age. Today, our visual feed—of both still and moving imagery—comes from multiple screens in multiple dimensions. Featuring 10 works by renowned photographers, this installation considers the territory of TV as worthy subject, conflicting message, and potent medium. On view in the Hammer Building, Level 2.
The Enigmatic Image: Curious Subjects in Indian Art explores visual indirectness encountered in Indian painting. While the basic subject of many Indian paintings is clear, many works feature complex subject matter and symbolic nuances that require some thought to understand their layers of meaning. On view in the Ahmanson Building, Level 4.
