As part of LACMA’s mission to offer meaningful experiences through art from many cultures and time periods, we have joined forces with peer institutions throughout the world for an evolving and collaborative approach for museums in the 21st century. Through these partnerships, LACMA can share exhibitions, collections, programs, and more with local, regional, and global audiences.
In 2019, the Yuz Museum Shanghai, LACMA, and Qatar Museums announced a historic collaboration to jointly develop and share exhibitions and programs across their institutions. The partnership aims to encourage the exchange of art and ideas among the three institutions, each a leader in the cultural sector. Each museum will bring unique expertise, collections, and audiences, forging a multi-site exhibition program that is truly global in perspective.
Exhibitions On View at Yuz Museum:
In Production: Art and the Studio System, November 6, 2019–March 1, 2020

In 2018, LACMA and the Autry announced an unprecedented new partnership that allows both museums to expand their programming content through the sharing of collections, joint programs, exhibitions, publications, and more. Via this new model, LACMA and the Autry can now extensively explore the art of the American West, as well as the artistic and cultural connections between the American Southwest, Mexico, and Latin America.
In 2018, LACMA and the Arizona State University launched a partnership of exchange and collaborative research. The first initiative to come of the partnership is a Masters Fellowship in Art History, which aims to accelerate the careers of a new generation of museum professionals by combining academic training and work experience. Collaborations around exhibitions, collection sharing, and other research and training opportunities are expected in the coming years.
