Evenings for Educators: The Portable Universe


Thu, 07/14/2022 – 13:37

Join us for an eye-opening look at The Portable Universe / El Universo en Tus Manos: Thought and Splendor of Indigenous Colombia! Featuring approximately 400 works, this groundbreaking exhibition presents the diversity and materiality of ancient Colombian cultures and reframes how we approach ancient Colombian art. The exhibition draws heavily on contemporary Indigenous understandings to evoke a worldview in which ancient artworks have relevance for today and the future. Enjoy a lecture, dinner, and workshops, and connect with the LACMA campus for an evening to remember!


4:30–6 pm: Arrive, check in, and explore the galleries
6–6:50 pm: Lecture in BCAM, Level 1, with curator Julia Burtenshaw
6:50–7:30 pm: Dinner on the Smidt Welcome Plaza

Parking is available in the Pritzker Parking Garage on 6th St. and tickets will be validated at registration.
