Announcing 2019–20 Exhibitions

July 31, 2019

As the plans for the new building for the permanent collection move forward, LACMA continues to offer an exciting and robust exhibition program. By this fall, all of LACMA's permanent collection galleries on the east side of campus will have closed in preparation for the construction phase of the new building, but BCAM, Resnick Pavilion and several outdoor locations on the museum campus will be open to the public and fully programmed throughout the construction period. We recently announced our upcoming exhibition schedule; learn more about each below!
