This Week at LACMA: Live Jazz, Scandinavian Design, Korean Art, & More!

Summer may be over, but Friday Night Jazz continues this month at LACMA’s Smidt Welcome Plaza, just beyond artist Chris Burden’s legendary public art installation “Urban Light.” And jazz isn’t all happening at LACMA this week. Read on below for more exhibitions, screenings, and things to do at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Weekly Update | Nov 14–20

The Space Between, The First of Its Kind

The Space Between: The Modern in Korean Art is a groundbreaking show that is the first of its kind in the West. The exhibition covers the years 1897 to 1965, loosely organized chronologically, stylistically, and conceptually.

Visit LACMA any day or RSVP for a gallery tour on Tuesday, November 15, to see a generative period in Korean art between the traditional and the contemporary illuminated comprehensively for the first time.
