LACMA is an encyclopedic museum, collecting and exhibiting artworks and conducting scholarship across times and cultures. While some of the museum's permanent collection galleries are closed in advance of construction, the museum remains active in each curatorial area through acquisitions, scholarship, and development of future exhibitions to be presented at LACMA and around the world. Some of your favorite artworks from our collection may be on view in another gallery at LACMA right now or in a traveling exhibition.
