This Week at LACMA

May 12, 2023

In Women Defining Women in Contemporary Art of the Middle East and Beyond, women's powerful narratives are embedded in art, expressing both personal and universal concerns across generations. In conjunction with the exhibition, on Tuesday, May 16, Los Angeles–based artists Sherin Guirguis and Yasmine Nasser Diaz will engage in a conversation about art-making, history, and place.

Visit LACMA this week to see these artists' stories and attend Tuesday's Art & Conversation: Sherin Guirguis and Yasmine Nasser Diaz
