This Weekend at LACMA

December 20, 2019
Victor Guzman, Marketing Coordinator

This weekend at LACMA, celebrate the holidays by journeying to the North Pole and the other corners of the world through the sublime photographs in Thomas Joshua Cooper: The World's Edge, on view through February 2, 2020. The World’s Edge comprises large- and small-scale black-and-white photographs, which showcase Cooper’s Atlas project in which he has charted the Atlantic basin from the extreme points of each north, south, east, and west coordinate. Using a 19th-century Agfa Ansco view camera, his singular exposure of each site includes neither a horizon line nor the terrain below his feet, but rather the surrounding “sea spaces.” For him, each place is a point of departure allowing contemplation of the ocean’s emptiness beyond the extreme points of the land. For more insights on this exhibition, join a docent-led tour on Friday, December 20 or Sunday, December 22 at 3 pm. 

Bring the little ones in your life to LACMA on Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm and attend Pop-up Art-making Activities in the Galleries, where they can find new ideas for inspiration, a fresh menu of art activities, and even high chairs for very young artists. Then on Friday at 2 pm, skip nap time and have the little ones enjoy imaginative tales at Story Time in the Galleries

Also, opening on Saturday, December 21 at 1 pm at LACMA's satellite gallery at Charles White Elementary School is Rufino Tamayo: Innovation and Experimentation. This exhibition highlights Tamayo’s longstanding interest in prints as a means of exploring new techniques and furthering experimentation. The exhibition will be on view through July 11, 2020, with public hours from 1 to 4 pm on Saturdays. We hope to see you soon!
