This Weekend at LACMA: David Smith Opens, Larry Fink Closes, Rare Godard Screening, and More

As previewed earlier this week, opening this Sunday in the Resnick Pavilion is David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy, the first major exhibition devoted to the artist on the West Coast in almost half a century. The show features more than 100 objects, including sculptures, drawings, paintings, and photographs from across Smith’s career. While you’re here be sure to head across the way to BCAM for Human Nature: Contemporary Art from the Collection.

Just adjacent to Cubes and Anarchy is Larry Fink: Hollywood, 2000–2010, which closes this Sunday. Also closing Sunday is In the Service of the Buddha: Tibetan Furniture from the Hayward Family Collection.

Between tonight and tomorrow you have four different opportunities to catch a rare screening of Jean-Luc Godard’s 1980 film Every Man for Himself, starring Jacques Dutronc and Isabelle Huppert. Godard referred to this as his “second first film”—a return to form after ten years of experimental films and radical politics.

With a new month comes a new theme for Andell Family Sundays: bring your kids to the museum for “Dig It: Egypt” —check out our recently reinstalled ancient world galleries (including a mummy in a sarcophagus!) and make art in our family workshops inspired by these ancient objects.

Sunday night, the Chamber Ensembles from the Colbern Conservatory will perform as part of our ongoing free Sundays Live concert series.
