This Week at LACMA

September 24, 2023

Woven Histories: Textiles and Modern Abstraction offers a fresh and authoritative look at textiles—particularly weaving—as a major force in the evolution of abstraction. With over 150 works by an international and transhistorical roster of artists, this exhibition reveals how shifting relations among abstract art, fashion, design, and craft shaped recurrent aesthetic, cultural, and socio-political forces, as they were impacted by modernist art forms. See it this week!
