Jazz at LACMA Returns & Other Spring Exhibitions and Events | April 2023

I’m thrilled that Jazz at LACMA is returning on April 28th! It’s been a long wait since last season. Jazz at LACMA is one of my favorite Los Angeles events, always taking place in Smidt Welcome Plaza next door to the iconic Urban Light. And miraculously Jazz at LACMA happens every Friday from April until November! And best of all? It’s free and open to the public. It’s the perfect opportunity to see and celebrate L.A.’s finest jazz musicians.
There are also three new exhibitions that will open at LACMA this month. Light, Space, Surface: Selections from LACMA’s Collection will open to the public on Sunday, April 2, followed by Sam Francis and Japan: Emptiness Overflowing on Sunday, April 9, and Women Defining Women in Contemporary Art of the Middle East and Beyond on Sunday, April 23. Spanning the Middle East, Japan, and beyond, these exhibitions showcase art and stories from around the world.
Hope to see you at LACMA this spring and later this summer!

This Month at LACMA | March 2023

Your Week’s Plans Are Set with Coded

Coded: Art Enters the Computer Age, 1952–1982 includes works by more than 75 artists, many of whom were pioneers of what we now call digital art. The works reflect the simultaneous wonder and alienation that was characteristic of the 1960s and ’70s, along with the utopian and dystopian possibilities of these new machines. Reserve your tickets for this week!

Visit LACMA on Friday, March 17, and Sunday, March 19, to join free docent-led tours of the exhibition.

Coded: Art Enters the Computer Age, 1952–1982 explores how the rise of computer technology, together with its emergence in popular consciousness, impacted the making of art in the age of the mainframe. International and interdisciplinary in scope, Coded examines the origins of what we now call digital art, featuring artists, writers, musicians, choreographers, and filmmakers working directly with computers as well as those using algorithms and other systems to produce their work. Whether computer-generated or not, the many artworks considered here reflect the simultaneous wonder and alienation that was characteristic of the 1960s and ’70s, along with the utopian and dystopian possibilities of these new machines. Today, with digital technology having been fully integrated into our lives, Coded’s examination of the years leading up to the advent of the personal computer is relevant, even imperative, to fully appreciating art and culture in the age of the computer—both then and now.
