“Beyond Line: The Art of Korean Writing” is now on view. Organized both conceptually and chronologically, this exhibition explores the role of calligraphy in different strata of Korean society over nearly two millennia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Due to the rarity of several of the international loans, “Beyond Line” will only be on view at LACMA—making this a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo courtesy National Museum of Korea

Chris Burden's “Metropolis II” is an intense kinetic sculpture, modeled after a fast paced, frenetic modern city. Miniature cars speed through the city at 240 scale miles per hour; every hour, the equivalent of approximately 100,000 cars circulate through the dense network of buildings. #LACMAPlusYou regram via @matthewsebastianwood ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See “Metropolis II” in action Saturdays and Sundays, 10:30 am–5:30 pm. © Chris Burden

Intricately decorated combs such as this date as far back as at least the first century CE in South Asia. The figural designs of the comb illustrated here, however, are especially unique. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The central female figure is portrayed with a wide stance, which suggests that she is a dancer. However, she holds a sword in her right hand and a shield in her left, a detail that suggests that she may instead be a goddess ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See this piece in the Resnick Pavillion.

“Untitled (Divine Proportion)” employs the historical past in order to explore the object in the present. 🔎 While the type of wood and the way it is crafted recalls the making of utilitarian objects of an earlier era, Weiwei’s contemporary work of art is thoroughly of our moment. With its nail-free joinery technique, “Divine Proportion” speaks to the circle or globe as an inherently well put together place, strong in its connection and rich in its natural cohesion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See this piece in “The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China,” on view now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ © Ai Weiwei, photo © Museum Associates/LACMA

It’s the final day of “Charles White: A Retrospective” at LACMA. As Curatorial Assistant Devi Noor put it, “White’s continued activism, teaching, and unmistakable artistic style remind us to hope for—and participate in—making a more diverse, equitable society.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pictured here: “Bessie Smith,” 1950. © The Charles White Archives, photo © Museum Associates/LACMA
