This Weekend at LACMA

February 10, 2017
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Join Korean art expert Mrs. Keum Ja Kang in the Brown Auditorium for a lecture on the beauty and elegance of Korean furniture. The uniqueness, variety, and simple beauty of Korean furniture have made them highly sought after and coveted globally. Explore the pieces and the stories behind them today (Friday) at 7 pm.

Walk through Jesús Rafael Soto’s Penetrable before it closes on Sunday. Penetrable, known to many young visitors as the "yellow spaghetti" piece, has been part of the LACMA landscape since 2011 and will return to the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros after the long-term loan to LACMA.

To celebrate Penetrable one last time before it goes, stop by the interactive sculpture between 12:30–3:30 pm on Sunday for an artful send-off. Leave a memory, give tips for future families to enjoy it, and tell us your own special name for this work of art! We’ve heard it called “the noodles,” “the spaghetti,” and even “the jungle!” To read more about the farewell event and what others have said, read this post on Unframed

Also on Sunday, Andell Family Sundays—Artist Bromance continues at the L.A. Times Central Court. Legendary artists Diego Rivera and Pablo Picasso were connected in art and friendship. Discover works by both artists and then create your own art inspired by their pieces.

Join LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan on Sunday as he talks to Flavin Judd, curator and co-president of Judd Foundation, about furniture, architecture, and art. A book signing and reception will follow the talk.

Opening on Sunday, Moholy-Nagy: Future Present reveals a utopian artist who believed that art could work hand-in-hand with technology for the betterment of humanity. Famously known for his involvement with the Bauhaus school, Moholy-Nagy worked in a number of mediums including painting, sculpture, graphic design, photography, and film. On view in the Art of the Americas Building, Level 2.
