(Los Angeles—July 19, 2017) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld, the artist’s first full-scale museum exhibition in Los Angeles. Sarah Charlesworth (1947–2013) was a highly influential artist whose work examined the role that photographic images play in contemporary culture.
