This Weekend at LACMA

December 1, 2017
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Welcome December with a weekend at LACMA.

Stroll through LACMA’s fifth PST: LA/LA exhibition Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici and discover a vibrant period marked by major stylistic developments and the invention of new iconographies. Explore over 100 artworks, many of which were specially restored for this exhibition. For an inside look at Antonio de Torres’s The Elevation of the Cross (Elevación de la cruz), read our latest post on Unframed.

Don’t miss your chance to see Playing With Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz one last time before it closes on Sunday. Almaraz gained popularity through his activism with Los Four and the United Farm Workers, and remains an important figure in Chicano art. Immerse yourself in his large-scale paintings that vibrantly depict Los Angeles and beyond.

Opening Sunday, Richard Prince: Untitled (cowboy) features the artist’s career-long motif of the cowboy in two photographic series publicly exhibited for the first time. Prince’s practice of re-photography had an explosive effect on the art world 40 years ago, and to this day he continues to challenge the conventional meanings and limits of the photographic medium.
