This Week at LACMA

October 8, 2023

Step into history when you explore the fictive 17th-century Dutch collector’s cabinet in The World Made Wondrous. Over 300 objects, including Dirck de Bray's 1671 Flowers in a Glass Vase, are displayed in the exhibition in order to examine European collecting practices. Visit LACMA on Tuesday, October 10, to join artists Sithabile Mlotshwa and Umar Rashid as they discuss their respective practices and the reimagining of colonial histories.
