This weekend at LACMA is going to be off-the-wall with the opening of Do Ho Suh: 348 West 22nd Street, on view starting this Sunday, November 10 with Member Previews through November 9. A recent gift to LACMA, 348 West 22nd Street replicates Do Ho Suh’s New York residence in a maze-like installation that balances intricate construction with delicate monumentality. In this immersive passageway of conjoined rooms, visitors pass through an ephemeral representation of the artist’s personal history. The corridor, stairs, apartment, and studio are each rendered in a single block of color, with fixtures and appliances replicated in exacting detail. Also, make sure to check out Kirsten Mosher: Soul Mate 180° which recently opened on Thursday, November 7. Art + Technology Lab grant recipient Kirsten Mosher developed the installation which comprises two elements: a marble sculpture nested in the garden outside of BCAM, and a short story displayed on a beam outside BCAM, Level 2. The sculpture depicts a wave in the Indian Ocean—the opposite side of the world from LACMA—created from data collected from high-resolution radar, ships, aircraft, satellites, and buoys.
On Friday, November 9 at 6 pm, join us for a special Jazz at LACMA concert performance by the Al Williams Jazz Society celebrating the exhibition Betye Saar: Call and Response. The exhibition will be open until 8 pm on Friday with curatorial staff available in the galleries to talk in-depth about the exhibition with visitors.
On Sunday, November 10 at 12:30 pm, bring your friends and family to Andell Family Sundays—Animals of the Supernatural, where you can make your own artwork inspired by the mythical animals in the exhibition Every Living Thing: Animals in Japanese Art. Then at 7 pm, attend Peter Plagens on Mary Corse: A Survey in Light, a discussion led by renowned art critic and painter Peter Plagens on Mary Corse's work in the context of what is generally called the West Coast Light and Space movement, and in the gendered art world of the time.
