Great Migrations at CAAM

The California African American Museum has reopened after $5 million in upgrades to roof, flooring, weatherproofing, and A/C. You probably won't notice any of that, but you will encounter Chloë Bass' participatory sundial/sculpture; a new atrium installation by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh; a slate of art and historical shows in the galleries.

The lobby installation, "Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Speaking to Falling Seeds," consists of monumental graphite drawings of Black Angelenos by the Brooklyn-based artist. It will remain in a place for two years (through Aug. 3, 2025) and will coincide with an exhibition on the artist at Art + Practice, opening in Spring 2024.
