This Weekend at LACMA

March 23, 2018

This weekend we welcome a new exhibition! Opening on Sunday, March 25, City and Cosmos: The Arts of Teotihuacan presents recent findings from Mexican national and international archaeological projects excavating at Teotihuacan's three main pyramids and major residential compounds. These discoveries from this multiethnic, cosmopolitan city that flourished in the first millenium CE have fundamentally changed our understanding of the city's history. Member Previews are on Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24. Join now to see this exhibition first.

On Saturday, join the Art of the Ancient Americas department at LACMA for an Opening Weekend Program for City and Cosmos. Archaeologists Sergio Gómez Chávez and Julie Gazzola will present first-hand accounts of the discovery of the Tlalocan tunnel offering in Teotihuacan and new findings about the city's early history. This program is in Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation (limited number of headsets available). 

Also on Saturday are a Family Day at Vincent Price Art Museum, where LACMA's Egyptian collection and photographs by Mariana Yampolsky are on view, and a conversation between Maria de Los Angeles and Carribean Fragoza at Charles White Elementary School Gallery in conjunction with A Universal History of Infamy: Those of This America

Join LACMA and East of Borneo on Sunday for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon and panel discussion addressing gender inequality in the film industry. This event is free, but online registration is required. 

Last but not least, don't miss Richard Prince: Untitled (cowboy), which closes on March 25.
