Make art a big part of your New Year's resolution this weekend at LACMA! Here's your last chance to visit Hidden Narratives: Recent Acquisitions of Postwar Art, closing Sunday, January 6. Hidden Narratives brings together a selection of recent acquisitions from LACMA’s growing collection of modern and contemporary art. Many of these artists explore language as an artistic medium or conceptual framework, as seen in works by Jesse Howard, Joseph Kosuth, Los Carpinteros, Alexis Smith, and Lawrence Weiner. Others foreground the body, considering its capabilities and limits, and the stories it might mask or expose; this interest in physicality is evident in pieces by Bas Jan Ader, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Ken Price, Dorothea Tanning, and Idelle Weber. Come explore the narratives in artistic mediums ranging from painting to sculpture, from film to mixed media, and through both abstract and figurative means and interpret the works through your own lens of experiences.
If you have never been to LACMA before or know of someone who has not visited yet, then take advantage of First-time Fridays, this Friday, January 4, 11–8 pm. First-timers get special perks at the LACMA Store, LACMA Café, and C+M. Just make sure to mention it's your first time at LACMA at one of our Ticket Offices. Also, note that admission is free after 3 pm for Los Angeles County residents.
Andell Family Sundays are back this Sunday, January 6, focusing on Robert Rauschenberg's monumental work, The 1/4 Mile. Drop in anytime between 12:30 and 3:30 pm and you and your family can get inspired by Rauschenberg's use of various mediums and add to a 60-foot collaborative weaving, dance creatively, and make mixed media prints in artist-led workshops.
