Los Angeles, CA 90036 United States

Frank Gehry has revolutionized architecture’s aesthetics, social and cultural role, and relationship to the city.

Talk: Mesoamerica in Midcentury California: Revivals and Reinvention

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), 5905 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036 United States

Pre-Hispanic revivals—from the Aztec, Maya, and other civilizations—were popular in California during the 1920s and 1930s in the design of theaters, hotels, furnishings, and jewelry, but such engagements with the Mesoamerican past had other fascinating manifestations from the 1950s to the 1970s. This panel will explore the new ways artists used pre-Hispanic imagery to mark regional and cultural identity, whether as emblems of defiance by the Chicano civil rights movement or symbols of timeless craft traditions. Moderated by LACMA associate…

Far from the established New York design world, California became a haven for avant-garde designers, a hub of innovation in both discourse and practice. This exhibition is part of LACMA’s Graphic Design Initiative, an interdepartmental project spearheaded by the Decorative…
