Places: Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico at the LACMA

Exploring the wealth of cultural connections between California and Mexico, the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art is currently showing “Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915-1985.

The show comprises a wide range of media, including paintings, woodwork, and textiles, with a particular focus on craft and design. These various works speak of the strongly interconnected dialogue between California and Mexico, and how it created a unique space in the craft and design world shared by the two locales.

Found in Translation runs until April 1st, 2018.

From their website: “Placing prominent figures such as Richard Neutra, Luis Barragán, Charles and Ray Eames, and Clara Porset in a new context while also highlighting contributions of less familiar practitioners, this exhibition is the first to examine how interconnections between California and Mexico shaped the material culture of each place, influencing and enhancing how they presented themselves to the wider world.”
