This Week at LACMA

August 28, 2022

Celebrate Labor Day weekend with LACMA's latest exhibition, Objects of Desire: Photography and the Language of Advertising, which traces the artistic manipulation of advertising and poses the question: what exactly are these pictures asking of us? Members see it first during Member Previews Thursday–Saturday this week.
