LACMA Hosts Annual Muse ’til Midnight Event Inspired by The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China

LOS ANGELES–The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) hosts its annual Muse ’til Midnight event, an immersive late-night museum experience. This year’s Muse ’til Midnight draws inspiration from The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China (June 2, 2019–January 5, 2020) bringing together works from the past four decades, in which conscious material choice has become a symbol of the artists’ expression.

The evening includes an exceptional musical lineup curated by independent record label Ninja Tune and dublab, featuring performances by acclaimed artists such as Actress, Octo Octa, Julianna Barwick, Yu Su, and many more. Additionally, site-specific sound and visual installations, inspired by materiality, will be on view. Performances are to take place at various locations throughout the museum.

This year’s event includes after-hours access to several exciting LACMA exhibitions, including The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China; Beyond Line: The Art of Korean Writing; The Invisible Man and the Masque of Blackness; and Mary Corse: A Survey in Light. Art activities, a cash bar, and food for purchase will be available during the event.

Muse ‘til Midnight is presented by SHOWTIME® and Max Mara.
