The Los Angeles County Museum of Art created LACMA @ Home, an online program that provides a museum experience at home.
LACMA shifted its focus from talking about Easter to a short film about the egg-shaped art museum from Guatemala, el Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo.
Visitors can watch “An Egg-shaped Museum Travels to L.A.” which tells the story of how Guatemala’s first and only contemporary art museum traveled from Guatemala City to Los Angeles thanks to an international Kickstarter community of 492 supporters. The video also shows the programming its founders created in the egg-shaped museum.
LACMA also highlighted Earth Day, and celebrated with Art + Tech grant recipient Julia Christensen, who hosted a virtual panel and discussion on April 22 at 4 p.m. Christensen’s discussion focused on the perceived notion that people need to constantly upgrade electronics to remain relevant and how humanity’s actions impact the future of the planet.
Aria Dean, editor and curator at Rhizome, and Jessica Gambling, LACMA archivist, were also speakers for Christensen’s panel.
Additionally, LACMA discussed art-making by using everyday objects found at home through Make Art @ Home, a new series of instructional art-making videos created by LACMA educators.
LACMA also released this week’s construction updates on Unframed, and continued to honor #ArtsMonth2020. The museum’s Virtual Arts Tune-Up, available through April 24, offers free learning and professional development for local artists.
