Light up your weekend at LACMA with Mary Corse: A Survey in Light opening this Sunday, July 28 with exclusive member previews Thursday through Saturday. This exhibition is the artist's first solo museum survey, highlighting critical moments of experimentation as Corse engaged with tropes of modernist painting while charting her own course through studies in quantum physics and complex investigations into a range of “painting” materials. Also opening this weekend, on Saturday, July 27, is The Invisible Man and the Masque of Blackness on view in the B. Gerald Cantor Sculpture Garden. This sculptural installation encapsulates the complex history of racial objectification and the evolution of black subjectivity, with 40 graphite figures standing tall and dignified to represent the strength and resilience of the African diaspora. Visit the installation on Sunday, July 28 at 4 pm for an afternoon of art, a musical performance by Trinidad Steel Drum Band, and a discussion with the artist Zak Ové.
This weekend is your last opportunity to visit the Chinese and Korean Art galleries, closing to the public on Sunday, July 28 for collection inventory and packing in preparation for the construction of the new building for the permanent collection designed by Peter Zumthor. A selection of the museum's Korean calligraphy holdings are on view in Beyond Line: The Art of Korean Writing in the Resnick Pavilion through September 29, 2019.
