> DESCRIPTION

Murmurs features a selection of recent acquisitions from LACMA’s permanent collection. These works reflect the proclivity in contemporary art to reject medium specificity and suggest new forms. The onomatopoetic title suggests the way that language takes form and occupies space; it is also a nod to Agnès Varda’s film Mur Murs, the title playing on the murmuring of murals on the walls of Los Angeles. The installation features Scoli Acosta, Tauba Auerbach, Tala Madani, Carter Mull, Alex Olson, Ry Rocklen, Erika Vogt, and Brenna Youngblood.
