World art in a museum.
Located at 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, this is one of the most famous museums in America and it has a long history. Until the Second World War, it was located in Exposition Park, forming part of a single complex alongside the Museum of History, Science and Art. It was after the war that it separated, setting up home at its current site between Hollywood and Beverly Hills. It is made up of six buildings located around a wide courtyard and was completely refurbished in 2004, thanks to the work of the architect Renzo Piano. Its interior houses more than 110,000 works of art from all periods and countries. In its permanent exhibitions, there is space for German expressionism, but also Japanese, Islamic, Indian, Nepalese, Tibetan and American styles, amongst many others. Also notable is its collection of more than 30,000 recordings and sketches, as well as the area devoted to modern and contemporary art, perhaps the most important in the museum. There you can see Russian avant-garde works, Parisian fauvism, New York expressionism and Mexican modernism. In addition, its temporary exhibitions often house works from the best contemporary artists and it regularly organises film screenings and concerts. See www.lacma.org for more information.
