This Weekend at LACMA

December 30, 2016
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Spend time in LACMA’s galleries before the new year and catch the exhibitions leaving on January 2. 

The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. celebrates the 50th anniversary of the renowned local printmaking workshop Gemini G.E.L. Art in sequential manner was prevalent in the 1960s as conceptual, minimalist, and pop artists adopted the serial format to explore the potential of systems and structures related to such notions as rational order and mass production. Explore colorful works in this exhibtion by seminal artists Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, and more. 

Senses of Time dissects characters in film-based works as they repeat, resist, and reverse any expectation that time must move relentlessly forward. The exhibition invites viewers to consider tensions between personal and political time, ritual and technological time, bodily and mechanical time. Through pacing, sequencing, looping, layering, and mirroring, diverse perceptions of time are both embodied and expressed.

CARtoons: Art of America’s Car Culture presents original art from the "only humor magazine in the world for the lovers and owners of cars." Produced in Los Angeles between 1959 and 1991, the magazine featured rollicking stories about hot-rods, drag-racing, muscle cars, makes and models from Chevys and Mustangs to Corvettes, and even imaginary and fantastic vehicles. 

Enjoy docent-led tours around the museum for an exploration of diverse and engaging topics. Experience highlights from LACMA's encyclopedic collection or enjoy a focused look at one artwork or exhibition. These engaging tours are offered daily, free with museum admission, and offer a deeper insight into the artworks.
