Director’s Note

October was one of the busiest single months in lacma’s history. We opened four exhibitions (California Design, Monet/

Lichtenstein, Mural Remix, and Glenn Ligon) and celebrated the spectacular closing of Tim Burton on Halloween weekend.

We saw the launch of our new Film Independent at lacma film series, led by Elvis Mitchell. And of course no one could

miss the well-publicized transport of the 340-ton boulder that is to be part of Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass. We also

announced plans to help the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences realize its dreams of creating a long-overdue

Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles (see News & Highlights).

So much activity last month hardly means we’re slowing down for November and December. I am looking forward to

seeing the ambitious exhibition Contested Visions in the Spanish Colonial World, organized by lacma curator Ilona Katzew, on

view in the Resnick Pavilion starting November 6. The exhibition represents lacma’s commitment to the wealth of Latin

American art from all periods, and in particular the museum’s efforts in recent years to build an impressive collection of

Spanish colonial art, much of which is on view alongside loans from around the world for this extraordinary show.

In addition to our many special exhibitions, our permanent collection galleries continue to transform. In December

I am pleased to see objects from our Chinese art collection go on view in the Hammer Building—the first time this

collection has been on view in more than five years. Stephen Little, head curator of Chinese art, and assistant curator

Christina Yu, have organized a “greatest hits” sampling of our collection, spanning thousands of years through roughly

forty beautiful objects.

Finally, be sure to see the small but powerful exhibition, Monet/Lichtenstein, on the third floor of bcam through January 2.

There have certainly there never been five of Monet’s Rouen Cathedral paintings in one room in California, and in fact

two of these paintings have never been seen anywhere in the United States. The installation, quite simple and quite

beautiful, speaks to the fact that over a hundred years ago Monet was working in series, as a very contemporary artist

would; at the same time, Roy Lichtenstein’s dot paintings can be seen much more deeply for their beautiful coloristic and

painterly qualities. It is a rare and thoughtful exhibition, not to be missed.

contested visions

in the spanish colonial world

November 6, 2011–January 29, 2012 | Resnick Pavilion

Member Preview Days: November 4–5

This groundbreaking exhibition offers a comparative view of the

two principal viceroyalties of Spanish America—Mexico and

Peru—from the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries. Featuring

some two hundred extraordinary artworks, the exhibition

addresses the continuation of pre-conquest forms and styles after

the conquest, and the multiple contexts in which indigenous

peoples were represented in the colonial period. By taking into

consideration the pre-Columbian—Inca and Aztec—origins of these

two vast geopolitical regions and their continuities and ruptures

over time, Contested Visions offers an arresting perspective on how

art and power intersected in the Spanish colonial world.

news & highlights

lacma and Academy to Develop Film Museum

lacma and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and

Sciences (ampas) have taken a step toward realizing an

Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in the historic

May Company building, currently known as lacma

West. The two organizations have signed a memorandum

of understanding, paving the way for ampas to

begin developing plans for its museum and modifications

to the historic site. The Academy hopes to sign a

long-term lease for the facility, and will retain autonomy

over all aspects of its museum while benefiting

from lacma’s experience in managing a premier arts

institution.

Art + Film Gala Honors Clint Eastwood,

John Baldessari

On November 5, lacma will hold its inaugural Art +

Film Gala, honoring two titans of the art and film

worlds—actor and filmmaker Clint Eastwood and artist

John Baldessari. The evening, co-chaired by actor

Leonardo DiCaprio and lacma trustee Eva Chow and

sponsored by Gucci, celebrates Los Angeles’s place as

the hub of the film industry and an international center

for contemporary art. Proceeds from the event will be

used to support lacma’s initiative to make film more

central to the museum’s curatorial program, while also

funding lacma’s broader mission.

Megalith to Arrive Soon

The 340-ton boulder that is to make up one part of

Michael Heizer’s monumental artwork Levitated Mass is

currently slated to arrive at lacma in early November.

Plans to transport one of the largest megalithic objects

to be moved since ancient times—from a quarry in

Riverside, California—involve a circuitous route

through three counties on roads that can accommodate

the massive object and its specially built transporter.

Once on site, construction crews will complete the

456-foot-long slot in the earth, as well as other finishing

touches. Transportation of the boulder is made possible

by Hanjin Shipping Co., Ltd. Visit lacma.org for more

coverage of the transportation and news of when

Levitated Mass will go on view to the public.

Burden and Nauman Artworks Installed in bcam

As previously reported in Connect, two large-scale

artworks are scheduled to go on view in bcam this fall:

Chris Burden’s Metropolis II and Bruce Nauman’s For

Beginners (all the combinations of the thumb and fingers). Visit

lacma.org for details, including opening date and

Member Preview Days.

Chinese Collection Opens in December

In December, works from lacma’s Chinese art collection

will be on view for the first time in more than five

years in the museum’s Hammer Building. The installation

features highlights from lacma’s broad collection

that spans more than four thousand years, ranging

from Neolithic potteries and jades to finely embroidered

nineteenth-century silk textiles.

Reviews Are in for lacma Exhibitions

lacma’s recently opened exhibitions affiliated with

Pacific Standard Time have received praise. The Los

Angeles Times called California Design “an uncommonly

rich and layered show,” while Asco: Elite of the Obscure

is “a thorough and absorbing retrospective” that is “a

prime example of the importance of the Getty-sponsored

Pacific Standard Time.” kcrw’s Art Talk called Maria

Nordman FILMROOM: SMOKE, 1967–Present “a welcome

summer breeze of an installation.” In contrast, the same

program called Edward Kienholz’s civil rights work

Five Car Stud “an amazingly powerful work” that “will

remain unsettlingly relevant as long as we live in a

world perpetually rattled by violence.” All four exhibitions

are on view now.

This exhibition was co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the

Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, Mexico. It was made possible

in part by Camilla Chandler Frost, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the

National Endowment for the Humanities.

Additional support was provided by Alice and Nahum Lainer; Betty and Brack Duker;

Ambassador Frank and Kathy Baxter; Carl and Marilynn Thoma Foundation;

Derek Johns, Ltd., London; Coll & Cortés, Madrid; and Janet Dreisen Rappaport.

Spotlight on Studio Ghibli

November 26 | 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm | New 35mm prints!

Founded in 1985 by directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao

Takahata and producer Toshio Suzuki, Japan’s Studio

Ghibli has produced some of the most renowned

animated films of all time. Infused with fantastical

folklores, Miyazaki’s spectacular adventures are almost

always told from the point of view of an itinerant child,

though they also bear deeply felt emotions and adult

concerns. The double bill features Castle in the Sky and

Spirited Away.

Spotlight on Aki Kaurismaki

December 8 | 7:30 pm

Corman’s World

Spirited Away

The delectably sardonic and bittersweet films of Finnish

writer-director Aki Kaurismaki remain little seen in the

United States (with the exception of his Oscar-nominated

2002 film The Man Without a Past). Kaurismaki’s films are

equal parts Beckettian comedy, kitchen-sink melodrama,

and inebriated Nouvelle Vague lyricism. The double

bill features La Vie de Bohème (1992) and Drifting Clouds (1996).

Awaara

December 10 | 7:30 pm

In 1951, Awaara (The Vagabond) was a global sensation for

actor and director Raj Kapoor, who was one of the first

Hindi directors to receive wide recognition and acclaim

outside of India. Kapoor is synonymous with the rise of

Bollywood and is revered throughout the world for the

films he made during the Golden Age of Indian cinema.

Awaara marks the first appearance of Kapoor’s iconic

tramp alter ego—a sly, charming street urchin who stands

in for India’s downtrodden—and boasts a twelve-minute

surrealist dream sequence of staggering proportions.

New 35mm print available thanks to Raj Kapoor and The Golden

Age of Indian Cinema, curated by Noah Cowan, artistic director,

tiff Bell Lightbox, and organized by tiff, iifa, and rk Films with

the support of the government of Ontario.

Also sponsored by

The series is also made possible by grants from the Hollywood

Foreign Press Association ® and the Academy of Motion Picture

Arts and Sciences.
