This Week at LACMA

December 31, 2023

Through paintings, sculpture, posters, photographs, film stills, and the graphic arts, Imagined Fronts: The Great War and Global Media examines World War I, showing how it affected the arts between 1914 and 1930, and the role of media in constructing a global "imagined community" that could be accepted as part of the war effort.

You can see this exhibition and more at LACMA this week during our extended holiday hours on Wednesday, January 3.
