Members: Member Preview—Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage

10 am | Sat, July 29, 2017
BCAM, Level 2

Members see it first. Members see it free.

Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage highlights the principal role that music and dance played in Chagall’s artistic practice. The performing arts were a significant source of inspiration for Chagall throughout his long career: he depicted musicians in many of his paintings, collaborated on set designs for the Ballet Russes in 1911, created murals and theatrical productions for the Moscow State Jewish Theater in the 1920s, and designed costumes and monumental sets for ballet and opera in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Special opportunity: On Saturday, July 29, LACMA docents will be inside the exhibition galleries as follows:
12–2 pm | Docents available to answer questions and engage in conversation
