This Weekend at LACMA

October 7, 2016
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Come out for the “Queen of Creole music” this Friday night at Jazz at LACMA! New Orleans vocalist Sandra Booker is known for her virtuosic scat ability, crystalline tone, and irrepressible musicality. Her style is familiar yet fresh, and her compositions match that perspective. She’s performed with many jazz luminaries including Lalo Schifrin, Billy Higgins, and the WDR Big Band. On Friday night she’ll grace the stage at the BP Grand Entrance, so grab a drink from Stark Bar and enjoy the show!

Join a discussion on the exhibition The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. in the symposium Series and Seriality in Prints on Saturday at 1 pm. The symposium will explore the centrality of series in the history of prints as well as the varied approaches to serial production adopted by Rembrandt, Picasso, and artists working at Gemini G.E.L. Speakers include associate curators Naoko Takahatake (LACMA), Emily Beeny (Norton Simon Museum), and Adam Greenhalgh (National Gallery of Art). 

Bring your crafty kids to October’s Andell Family Sundays: Wear Your Bling. Check out regal crowns, giant necklaces, and feathered headwear in Beyond Bling before making your own whimsical jewelry inspired by the exhibition.

On Sunday night enjoy the magical sounds of Grammy-award winning pianist Petronel Malan. Malan’s career was launched following five gold medals in 2000 at international piano competitions throughout the United States, and she is lauded by reviewers as an unmistakably creative force in the classical music industry.

Don’t forget to visit new exhibition TV on Film, opening this Sunday in the Hammer Building. Television, as both a term and a commodity, is undergoing transformation. Television now registers as benign in light of the constant hover, hum, and hook-up of the internet. 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.
