Throughout Vera Lutter’s residency at LACMA, a team of filmmakers documented the building of her cameras on the museum’s outdoor plaza and inside the galleries, and followed the artist on a near-daily basis as she created the artworks on view here. This short film shares behind-the-scenes footage as well as insights from Vera Lutter and exhibition curator Jennifer King into the artistic process and the meanings they find in her photographs.
