This Weekend at LACMA

November 23, 2018
Victor Guzman, Marketing Coordinator

This holiday weekend, LACMA welcomes you to come together and explore Outliers and American Vanguard Art, on view through March 17, 2019. This exhibition explores inclusion, integration, and assimilation in American art history when avant-garde artists and outliers intersected and how these interchanges challenged traditional hierarchies about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture. The exhibition is composed of over 250 works in a wide arrange of media and it is organized in three sections, beginning with the early history of  American Modernism, followed by outlier and visionary artists of the late 1960s featuring West Coast Assemblage and Chicago Imagist Art, and concluding with the impact of outlier practices on contemporary art. The show features more than 80 self-taught and trained artists such as Sam Doyle, Greer Lankton, Jacob Lawrence, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Martín Ramírez, Betye Saar, Judith Scott, Cindy Sherman, and Kara Walker, so make sure to visit over the weekend and enjoy an insightful docent-led tour of the exhibition on Sunday, November 25 at 2 pm, free with general admission.

On Friday, November 23 at 2 pm, bring the children in your life to Story Time in the Galleries. This free program welcomes families and children of all ages to take a reading journey in the comfort of our Korean art galleries.

Also, don't miss the last Jazz at LACMA event this Friday, November 23, at 6 pm, featuring Michael Session and his all-star sextet! Firmly rooted in classic Blue Note, the sextet’s front line plays crisp, harmonized arrangements based in blues and uptown bebop. Lastly, on Sunday, November 25, Sundays Live presents pianist Inyoung Huh performing Beethoven, Liszt, and Prokofiev.
