This Weekend at LACMA

May 4, 2018

In the Fields of Empty Days opens this Sunday! Explore 125 works of art that explore the intersection of past and present in Iranian society. Member Previews for this exhibition are May 3–5. Learn more about how this exhibition came about in this essay by curator Linda Komaroff. Don't forget to attend a panel discussion on Sunday at 1 pm: Women and the Arts in Iran, which will provide an account of how women operate and negotiate their way in Iran as artists. 

On Friday and Saturday, check out a symposium focused on new research in the archaeology, art history, and conservation of Teotihuacan, in conjunction with City and Cosmos: The Arts of Teotihuacan, on view in the Resnick Pavilion. Hear from esteemed researchers from around the world to deepen you knowledge and appreciation for the works of art in the show. 

Bring the whole family for Andell Family Sundays to learn about Teotihuacan and check out all the other exhibitions and programs both on campus and on Saturday afternoon at Charles White Elementary School.

As always, there is plenty of music to enjoy this weekend, from Wendy Smith-Bruné's Friday evening performance at Jazz at LACMA to Sundays Live with pianist Neal Stulberg and saxophonist Douglas Masek.
