The long-awaited Diana Thater: The Sympathetic Imagination opens on Sunday. The immersive exhibition showcases the most comprehensive collection of her work to date. Thater's pieces masterfully combine art and technology into a stimulating array of film-, video-, and installation-based works that consider the relation between man and nature. Members' preview for Diana Thater: The Sympathetic Imagination begin Saturday at 10 am.

On Friday, join us for Jazz at LACMA with The Cat & Cip Band, featuring vocalist Cat Conner and saxophonist Gene Gipriano with John Chiodini. The show starts at 6 pm in the L.A. Times Central Court and is open to all. Sundays Live features cellist Sarah Rommel, an award-winning and highly accomplished musician who has collaborated with orchestras the world over. Her performance begins at 6 pm in the Bing Theater.

Also on Friday, Artadia presents a conversation with Katherine Brinson—curator of contemporary art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York—and Los Angeles artist Alex Hubbard. At 7:30 pm in the Bing Theater, listen in as the two discuss Hubbard's solo exhibition Basic Perversions, the inaugural exhibition at Maccarone, Los Angeles.
