  • LACMA ’s upcoming brush with German, French expressionists

    By Tom Freudenheim

    May 28, 2014 | 12:45 pm

    Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s (LACMA) pre-eminent role as the American museum most regularly engaged in exhibitions to re-examine German Expressionism, its offshoots and variants was firmly established decades ago. The museum’s Robert Gore Rifkind Center for German...

  • ‘The Interview’ explores dystopian world of parenting

    October 2, 2013 | 2:17 pm

    Imagine a world in which having a child is more difficult than getting into Harvard, a world in which government bureaucrats decide who is fit to be a parent. That’s the idea behind Susan Josephs’ new play, “The Interview.”

    On a recent afternoon at the Los Angeles County Museum...

  • Hans Richter’s future is now!

    By Tom Teicholz

    July 2, 2013 | 11:49 am

    The exhibition “Hans Richter: Encounters” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a curator’s dream:  retrospective of a somewhat obscure, multiplatform artist, who is equally adept (and revolutionary) in painting and film; whose life and career intersects with the major artists...

  • The fabric of dance at LACMA

    June 13, 2012 | 12:48 pm

    When artist Sharon Lockhart traveled to Israel in 2008, she wasn’t searching for Noa Eshkol. The Israeli dance composer and textile artist was not well-known outside her own country. In fact, Eshkol isn’t terribly well-known within Israel, where companies like Batsheva, Inbal,...

  • LACMA Script Reading Reservoir Dogs

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 17, 2012 | 12:37 am

    I went to my second script reading series for Film Independent at LACMA. Jason Reitman directed an all African American cast reading the script for Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.  Terrence Howard was so funny, he almost out-shined Laurence Fishburne in a cast that included Cuba...

  • Who owns a horror?

    By Susan Freudenheim

    November 22, 2011 | 4:28 pm

    At the Los Angeles County Museum of Art right now, in the ground-level hall of the Art of the Americas building, right off the main courtyard, a life-sized, lifelike sculptural installation shows a black man being castrated by a group of five white men wearing cartoonish masks.

  • How L.A. grew its own art

    By Tom Teicholz

    September 7, 2011 | 9:52 am

    For those of us who are not native to Los Angeles yet live here (some for more of our lives than anywhere else), there is a compulsion to define Los Angeles, to get control in some manner of this ever-changing city that is distinguished as much by its sprawl as its particulars, by...

  • Meeting Tim Burton:  From My House to His Art Show

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    May 31, 2011 | 3:36 pm

    At the opening of “Tim Burton,” the ghoulishly charming filmmaker’s retrospective at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Saturday, the wild-haired auteur held court at the Resnick Pavilion, where more than 700 pieces of his movie and personal artwork will be on display through...

  • From our house to Burton Exhibit: Why the Museum of Modern Art’s curators wanted to meet my husband

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    May 31, 2011 | 1:27 pm

    When the curators from Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) came calling two years ago, my husband, Ron Magid, had prepared for them a veritable smorgasbord of art by the gothic filmmaker Tim Burton. Among the fare sprawled across our dining room table was a pointy-eared cowl...

  • LACMA’s newest gem revealed

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    September 28, 2010 | 6:16 pm

    Last week, just before the press tour of the new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), architect Renzo Piano thanked the patrons of his newest building and described the Resnicks as “lovable clients.”

    Hearing this from the...

  • LACMA plans pioneering post-war German art show

    By Tom Freudenheim

    December 10, 2008 | 1:59 pm

    Discomfort with German art might seem like a problem that's particular to the Jewish community. It's another part of the "I would never set foot in Germany" statement that I often heard in response to my frequent German trips and my subsequent working in Berlin.

    Since we're...

  • This being Los Angeles . . .

    By Gina Nahai

    January 31, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Last Thursday night at LACMA, I was treated to a reading of my own works by the very talented and beautiful actress Bahar Soumekh, and by UC Irvine professor Nasrin Rahimieh. Outside the Bing Theater, rain poured in sheets, and traffic on Wilshire was at a standstill because all the...
  • LACMA gets contemporary

    By Tom Teicholz

    December 27, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    In February, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will unveil the first phase of its renovation and expansion, including the opening of a new building devoted to contemporary art -- the Broad Contemporary Art Museum (that's Broad as in Eli and Edythe Broad, our local Medicis) or, as...
  • Abstract eye follows Dali in film at LACMA

    By Tom Freudenheim

    September 20, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Even by the standards of today's overheated art market, few artists have been as excessively hyped and overexposed as Salvador Dali (1904-1989). There are museums dedicated to his work in Florida and Spain, and in London you can "be transported into a world of melting clocks and...
  • LACMA’s latest exhibition tries to capture the time when everything changed—the ‘Summer of Love’

    By Tom L. Freudenheim

    June 14, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    In the late 1950s, when flapper dresses made one of their regular comebacks, I recall my mother scoffing (apropos of something worn by my girlfriend) that this sort retrospective fashion statement showed a total misunderstanding of what the 1920s and 1930s were about.

    Now that...

  • Who’s Your Mummy?

    By Tom Teicholz

    October 20, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    On a day when a hot desert wind whipped through town, I found myself in a darkened chamber contemplating death and the afterlife -- not my own, for a change, but rather that of the ancient Egyptians.

    Currently the L.A. area is hosting two world-class exhibitions of ancient Egyptian...
