This Week at LACMA

January 1, 2023

The recently opened exhibition Afro-Atlantic Histories charts the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies in the African diaspora. Organized around six groupings—Maps and Margins, Enslavements and Emancipations, Everyday Lives, Rites and Rhythms, Portraits, and Resistances and Activism—each section considers the critical impact of the African diaspora reflected in historic and contemporary artworks.
