Join a special docent-led tour of the Modern Art Galleries.
LACMA’s Modern Art collection, which primarily features European and American art from 1900 to the 1960s, returns to public view with examples of work from the museum’s American, Decorative Arts and Design, and Latin American Art holdings. As in the past, several galleries are dedicated to the Janice and Henri Lazarof Collection—including concentrations of work by Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti—and others are devoted to the museum’s renowned German Expressionist holdings of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. The installation presents Michael McMillen’s immersive environment Central Meridian (The Garage) (1981), and recent acquisitions by Josef Albers, Judy Chicago, Theo van Doesburg, Maren Hassinger, Jacob Lawrence, Anne Truitt, and others are displayed for the first time. The Modern Art Galleries have been redesigned in collaboration with Frank Gehry and Associates, and include new interpretive texts, a series of thematic audio tours, and an installation soundtrack.
