This Weekend at LACMA

March 3, 2017
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

This Saturday, Locals will look deeply at selected artworks through Local: Look, where museum educator Amber Smith will lead a tour and discussion on Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time. Learn about the aritsts’ Cubist years in Paris and work created in post-war Europe and Mexico. Not a LACMA Local member? Join today!

Saturday night, enjoy a free screening of Steve Conrad’s new Amazon series, Patriot. Conrad’s deadpan and surrealist take on how a perceived slight can linger in the air for years is at the heart of the series, which follows the unraveling of an undercover operative. The screening includes a special conversation with the creators, producers, and actors of the movie.

On Sunday, learn about the magnetic force that links eye to eye. Join Polly Nooter Roberts, UCLA professor of world arts and cultures and consulting curator for African art at LACMA, on a tour of The Inner Eye: Vision and Transcendence in African Arts. This curator-led tour is free with general admission.

After the talk, head over to Art Catalogues for a special talk by writer Jules Allen and UC Irvine professor Joe Lewis. Celebrate the publication of Marching Bands, Allen's latest book, and hear Allen and Lewis in conversation about the complexity, pageantry, and contribution of black marching bands. A performance by Centennial High School Marching Band begins promptly at 4 pm on the BP Grand Entrance.
