This Week at LACMA

June 3, 2022

Archive of the World, the first exhibition of LACMA’s notable holdings of Spanish American art, is here! Following the arrival of the Spaniards in the Americas in the 15th century, the region developed complex artistic traditions that drew on Indigenous, European, Asian, and African art. This confluence of riches is explored through 90 works, including several recent acquisitions. 

On Wednesday, June 8, at 4 pm an online creative writing workshop led by poet, composer, and teacher Ryka Aoki will offer prompts inspired the current exhibition Barbara Kruger: Thinking of You. I Mean Me. I Mean You.
