Getty Museum Presents A Queen's Treasure from Versailles: Marie-Antoinette's Japanese Lacquer

A Queen's Treasure brings to the Getty precious examples of Japanese lacquer from the personal collection of the French queen Marie-Antoinette (1755–1793). Her collection of small lacquer boxes was one of the finest assembled in Europe, and she considered them to be among her most cherished possessions. The elaborate and costly works reveal a fascinating example of the queen's sophisticated taste and demonstrate the consistent level of achievement attained by Japanese lacquer artists during the mid-Edo period (about 1681–1764) when these pieces were created.

Getty Research Institute Presents Harald Szeemann: Museum of Obsessions

Harald Szeemann: Museum of Obsessions explores the life and career of the quintessential exhibition maker, from his groundbreaking involvement with the avant-garde movements of the 1960s and 1970s and his global contemporary exhibitions of the 1990s and 2000s to his personal reading of early 20th-century modernism. Drawn from materials in the Harald Szeemann Archive at the Getty Research Institute, the exhibition is structured as a surprising series of thematic interests: avant-gardes, utopias and visionaries, geographies, and grandfathers.

This exhibition features a satellite presentation, Grandfather: A Pioneer Like Us, on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (ICA LA) from February 4 to April 22, 2018.
