New Gifts by Artists
30 October 2016 – 2 April 2017
Since LACMA’s establishment, living artists have played an instrumental role in understanding the museum’s encyclopedic collection through a contemporary lens. L.A. Exuberance: Artist Gifts to LACMA features a selection of works that were given to the museum for its 50th anniversary, as part of a campaign led by artist Catherine Opie. The exhibition features additions to the collection by Edgar Arceneaux, John Baldessari, Uta Barth, Larry Bell, Tacita Dean, Sam Durant, Ken Gonzales-Day, Mark Hagen, Friedrich Kunath, Charles Gaines, Glenn Kaino, Sterling Ruby, James Welling, Brenna Youngblood, Mario Ybarra, Jr., and others. This exhibition marks the culmination of LACMA’s 50th anniversary year, one that began with historic gifts to the museum represented in 50 for 50: Gifts on the Occasion of LACMA’s Anniversary.
This exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
All exhibitions at LACMA are underwritten by the LACMA Exhibition Fund. Major annual support is provided by Kitzia and Richard Goodman, with generous annual funding from Louise and Brad Edgerton, Edgerton Foundation, Emily and Teddy Greenspan, Jenna and Jason Grosfeld, and Lenore and Richard Wayne.
