Light Play

Light Play: Experiments in Photography, 1970 to the Present is a complementary exhibition to Moholy-Nagy: Future Present. Drawn from LACMA’s permanent collection, Light Play features a selection of still- and moving-image works by artists who have extended, as did Moholy, the parameters of photography, a medium defined as the recording of light: Walead Beshty, Phil Chang, Robert Heinecken, John Houck, Masood Kamandy, Farrah Karapetian, Barbara Kasten, William Larson, Sheila Pinkel, Susan Rankaitis, Alison Rossiter, Wolfgang Tillmans, James Welling, and Jennifer West. 

Light Play is on view in LACMA's Study Center for Photographs and Works on Paper, adjacent to Moholy-Nagy: Future Present, on weekends from February 12 through June 18, 2017 (Saturday and Sunday, 10am–7pm).

This exhibition is included in General Admission.
Join now and see it free, or reserve a ticket.
