This Week at LACMA

December 4, 2022

Afro-Atlantic Histories charts the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies in the African diaspora. Through a series of dialogues across time, the exhibition features artworks produced in Africa, Europe, and the Americas in the last four centuries to reexamine—from a global perspective—histories and stories of enslavement, resilience, and the struggle for liberation.

Members see it first. Visit LACMA on Sunday, December 11, to join curators Rita Gonzalez and José Luis Blondet for In Conversation: Afro-Atlantic Histories.
