Mark Grotjahn: 50 Kitchens
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  Los Angeles County Museum of Art  •  20 May - 19 August 2018
 
 
Mark Grotjahn has made his Butterfly compositions since 2002, the latest is 50 Kitchens (2013–18), which will be exhibited at LACMA for the first time. Conceived as one work, 50 Kitchens takes its inspiration from a single composition that Grotjahn made to meet the dimensional specifications of a wall in his kitchen. The more than fifty subsequent chromatic drawings explore pairs of radiating colors and together create a prismatic display.

David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  Los Angeles County Museum of Art  •  15 April - 29 July 2018
 
In 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life, David Hockney offers a vibrant and intimate view of people with whom he has developed relationships over the past 50 years. The majority of the portraits were painted in Hockney’s Los Angeles studio, all from life and over a period of two or three days, which the artist has described as “a 20-hour exposure.” None of Hockney’s portraits are commissioned; for this series he invited family, members of his staff, and close friends to sit for him—including several curators, art dealers, and collectors with local and international renown. John Baldessari, Douglas Baxter, Edith Devaney, Larry Gagosian, Frank Gehry, Peter Goulds, Barry Humphries, David Juda, Rita Pynoos, Joan Quinn, Norman Rosenthal, Jacob Rothschild, and Benedikt Taschen are among those portrayed, as well as LACMA’s Stephanie Barron and Dagny Corcoran.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art presents City and Cosmos: The Arts of Teotihuacan, a groundbreaking exhibition featuring new archaeological discoveries from the ancient city’s three main pyramids and major residential compounds.

Organized in collaboration with Mexico’s Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) and the de Young Museum, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, City and Cosmos is organized according to the city’s main architectural complexes and highlights visible monumental sculpture and buried offerings from the three main pyramids: Sun Pyramid, Moon Pyramid, and Feathered Serpent Pyramid; residential compounds; and the city’s edges and beyond.

A Universal History of Infamy: Those of This America

As part of the multisite project A Universal History of Infamy, LACMA presents an exhibition curated by artist and educator Vincent Ramos at the museum's satellite gallery within Charles White Elementary School.
