This Weekend at LACMA

August 18, 2017
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Muse ‘til Midnight is back! Get your tickets for the ultimate late night dance party at LACMA. Saturday night, celebrate Latin American and Latino art with DJs both in and out of the galleries. Get down to vinyl 45s by Urban Light and pay homage to East L.A. Chicano and Latinx music after touring the exhibitions on view.

Before you let loose at Muse, step into the Art + Tech Lab for a glimpse at the future. Explore the first neuroscientifically driven concept car, the Roadable Synapse. Artist Jonathon Keats will present ways to augment the driving experience in next-generation passenger vehicles including vehicle speed, vehicle power, auto body aerodynamics, and driving efficiency.

On Sunday, welcome two new exhibitions.

Examine the role that photographic images play in contemporary culture in Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld. Featuring photographs made between 1977 and 2012, the exhibition accentuates the iconic artist’s continued interest in color, form, and light. Read more about the artist on Unframed.

A Universal History of Infamy engages U.S. Latino and Latin American artists working across a range of media—from installation and performance to drawing and video—challenging any notion of absoluteness with regard to what constitutes Latin America and its diaspora in the United States, the art that can be associated with it, and how to approach this complex region. Learn more about the making of the exhibition on Unframed.

In conjunction with A Universal History of Infamy, step onto the sculpture garden on Sunday for a special performance by Guatemalan artist Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa. The artist presents El Corazón del espantapájaros (Heart of the Scarecrow), after a play by Guatemalan playwright Hugo Carrillo.
