Middle school teens will be taking over LACMA on October 27! We’ve planned a fun, creative night filled with art making, in-gallery activities, dancing, and eating tacos. This year’s theme is inspired by the extensive (and interactive!) exhibition 3D: Double Vision, which delves into both the science of 3D photography and film, and the artists who make work using varying 3D techniques.
DJs from ArTES High School in San Fernando will set the upbeat tone and their dance team will perform and lead a group dance.
Artists Katy Unger and Brandon Barr’s workshops play with hologram-like illusions known as the Pepper’s Ghost effect. (Fun fact: holograms must be created by a laser in order to be considered a hologram.) They are inspired by A. Michael Noll’s Computer-Animated Movie of a Three-Dimensional Perspective Projection of Rotating Four-Dimensional Hypercube and by Simone Forti’s Striding Crawling.
LACMA educator Chelsea Hogan has developed in-gallery activities that engage teens to experience art in playful and social ways.
The last hour of every Teen Night at LACMA ends with a dance party. This year will be no exception. End the evening by dancing to ArTES High DJs.
