Upcoming Exhibitions at LACMA | June 2024–Winter 2025

Advance Exhibition Schedule

LACMA’s summer of women artists kicked off with Simone Leigh and continues with Judy Baca: Painting in the River of Angeles, now extended through July 21, followed by Magdalena Suarez Frimkess: The Finest Disregard—the artist’s first-ever museum survey—which opens in August.

Later this year, LACMA will invite visitors to explore the junction of art and science in new and unexpected ways, as part of PST ART: Art & Science Collide. Spanning histories across the globe from the Stone Age to the present, our fall season will spotlight the power of color in Indigenous Mesoamerican traditions; universal endeavors to capture the cosmos; the world-altering impact of digital editing tools; and lens-based portraits of rapidly changing ecologies. More information can be found in our Advance Exhibition Schedule.
