New LACMA Exhibit Offers a Cynical Take on Office Culture

(LA Trend) — The Los Angeles County Museum of Art recently announced a new outdoor exhibit by L.A.-based photographer, Alex Prager. Prager’s work, “Farewell, Work Holiday Parties,” is a 3D installation that will make viewers thankful there are no holiday office parties this year. Fifteen life-size sculptures memorialize the worst parts of social gatherings from sleeping coworkers to overly enthusiastic, posed photos and awkward small talk.

Sponsored by Miller Lite and in partnership with DDB Chicago and San Francisco, this installation was designed as a social commentary on human connection. It’s part of a larger campaign by Miller. Now that forced holiday parties are off the table, beer drinkers will have more time with their real friends and, of course, drink a Miller Lite. The exhibition is tied to the company’s new lineup of “ugly” holiday knitwear and refreshed holiday packaging.

Enjoy this satirical take on office culture at the Smidt Welcome Plaza from 10 am – 7 pm daily. Visitors are required to wear masks and practice social distancing.

While you’re visiting the large art campus, stop by the iconic Urban Light display by Chris Burden. This large-scale installation allows visitors to walk among rows of restored street lamps from the 1920s and 1930s. Perhaps one of the most photographed works in L.A., the installations 309 street lamps are turned on nightly.

Starting this weekend, LACMA’s restaurants will be open for outdoor dining and takeout. Enjoy a family-friendly margarita pizza or sip on one of Ray’s signature cocktails and indulge in the Croissant Bread Pudding with dulce de leche, crème Fraiche and a sprinkling of sea salt. Reservations are available online. Visitors can also pick up a grab-and-go sandwich and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate from C + M.

Look forward to upcoming exhibits at LACMA’s Resnick Pavilion including a forthcoming video and sculpture installation and Japanese-inspired works.
