This Week at LACMA

August 14, 2022

With the European conquest, Indigenous cultures and knowledge, based on millennia of intellectual efforts, were disregarded. The Portable Universe is designed to recapture some of that knowledge, inviting visitors into a cultural dialogue that spans both space and time. Learn how the exhibition was created in the Unpacking the Universe video series.
