"Yuz Museum Shanghai (YUZ), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and Qatar Museums (QM) announce 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 these three cities, 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.
The inaugural exhibition of this partnership, In Production: Art and the Studio System, explores the interconnected histories of visual art and film. Featured artists include Cayetano Ferrer, Douglas Gordon, Alex Israel, Mike Kelley, Alex Prager, Amanda Ross-Ho, and Martine Syms. Opening to the public on November 7, 2019 in Shanghai, In Production is grounded in works from LACMA’s renowned permanent collection. The exhibition is curated by Rita Gonzalez, Terri and Michael Smooke Curator and Department Head, Contemporary Art, at LACMA.
Following In Production, the exhibition schedule continues with three shows to be presented in 2020, including The Abode of Illusions: The Garden of Zhang Daqian (March–May 2020), drawing from the Yuz Collection, and This Is Not a Selfie: Photographic Self-Portraits from the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection (May–August 2020), which features works from LACMA’s permanent collection. The third exhibition, Yoshitomo Nara, will be on view at LACMA (April 5–August 2, 2020) before traveling to Yuz Museum (Fall 2020)."
