LACMA Pacts With Westfield to Exhibit Art at Redeveloped Century City Mall (Exclusive)
The museum will loan the works on a long-term basis beginning this fall.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is partnering with shopping mall group Westfield to exhibit select pieces from the museum's collection on a long-term basis at Westfield Century City.
The multiyear partnership will begin in the fall with three sculptures — Woods Davy’s Toluca, Jene Highstein’s Eolith I and Michael Todd’s Daimaru XI — being placed in prominent locations at Westfield Century City, with scope for other pieces to be put on display in the future. The unveiling of the three sculptures will coincide with the completion of Westfield Century City's $1 billion redevelopment.
“LACMA is thrilled to partner with Westfield Century City this fall. As a County museum for County residents, LACMA is committed to engaging with and being a resource for all residents and communities of Los Angeles,” said Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg director. “This partnership is a continuation of our longstanding practice of bringing programming and exhibitions into communities, and is also an exciting opportunity for the museum to share its permanent collection in a special way.”
“We are tremendously grateful to LACMA for enthusiastically sharing this vision, and can’t wait to give our customers a chance to experience incredible pieces of art close-up and in an entirely new way," said Heather Vandenberghe, Westfield’s chief marketing officer in the United States.
