The Renzo Piano-designed pavilion at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will open to the public on October 2. Funded mainly from a $45 million gift from the philanthropists Stewart and Lynda Resnick, the 45,000 square foot space opens with three exhibitions: 1. Sculptures and vessels from Mesoamerican antiquity; 2. Two hundred years of aristocratic clothing; and 3. a selection of works from the Resnicks’ collection with a focus on French Rococo. Read more about the inaugural shows in this LA Times Review. And the review of the architecture here.
And finally, here is a cool interactive graphic of the whole LACMA campus.
