Tidawhitney Lek's panoramic paintings of the Cambodian diaspora are a standout of the Hammer's "Made in L.A. 2023" and the subject of a concurrent single-artist show at the Long Beach Museum of Art's Downtown site. LACMA has just acquired a painting out of the Long Beach show, Local Market, via its Art Here and Now: Studio Forum initiative. 

Local Market shows the Dong Mai Supermarket in Long Beach's Cambodia Town. The 2023 painting, in acrylic, oil, and glitter, is 12 by 6 feet.

LBMA Downtown's "Tidawhitney Lek: Living Spaces" runs through Feb. 4, 2024.
