Members: Member Preview—Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici

10 am | Sat, November 18, 2017
Resnick Pavilion

Members see it first. Members see it free. 

Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici is a groundbreaking exhibition devoted to 18th-century Mexican painting, a vibrant period marked by major stylistic developments and the invention of new iconographies. The exhibition’s over 100 works (many unpublished and restored for the exhibition), will make a lasting contribution to our understanding of Mexican painting in particular and transatlantic artistic connections in the 18th century in general. The exhibition represents the first and most serious effort to date to reposition the history of 18th-century painting in Mexico.

Special opportunity: On Thursday, November 16, LACMA docents will be inside the exhibition galleries as follows:
12–4 pm | Docents available to answer questions and engage in conversation
12:30 pm and 2:30 pm | Members-only docent tour of the exhibition

Please note: there are two additional Member Previews for this exhibition (November 16–17). 

This exhibition is included in general admission, which is always free for members.
