This Week at LACMA

April 9, 2023

Through a series of dialogues across time, Afro-Atlantic Histories 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.

Visit LACMA on Tuesday, April 11, to see the exhibition and join From Photograph to Screen, the West Coast premiere of Robin Coste Lewis’s moving-image and sound film, Intimacy—a reading of existentialist lyric poems that relocate Blackness within the history of the universe and human evolution.
