One of the Most Important Fundraisers at LACMA
Collectors Committee Weekend wrapped up with eight new acquisitions and $2.4 million dollars raised.
One of the most exciting and important fundraisers of the year, the two-day Collectors Committee event was a resounding success. This year, all proposed acquisitions were by female artists ranging from the 15th century to today, in line with the museum’s commitment to further diversify its collection. Only one work has been disclosed so far— Untitled by Luchita Hurtado, who’s been enjoying her golden hour recently with a solo show in New York, and retrospectives scheduled in London and Mexico.
In addition, each year, an artist whose work is in LACMA’s collection makes an edition for Collectors Committee members who donate at the highest level. This year, Betye Saar known for her works that mix surreal, symbolic imagery with a folk art aesthetic, did the honors.
从6月2日起，在洛杉矶LACMA将展出34件作品，让美国观众了解过去四十年的中国艺术。 虽然由Allure of Matter联合展出的艺术家在中国当代艺术界众所周知，但在美国仍然鲜为人知。LACMA正在努力改变这一认知。此次展览展出了20位中国最重要、最具影响力的艺术家——从艾未未、蔡国强到徐冰、张煌等等。着重于有意识材料选择以及在不同作品中的不同象征。
