    • In this edition of “I Don’t Get It,” the AAM is setting up a pop-up appropriation portrait studio in Nate Lowman’s exhibition Before and After. The evening will begin with an alternative curator-tour with the AAM’s Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Heidi Zuckerman. This interactive discussion of Nate Lowman’s exhibition will be followed by an in-gallery art activity that turns a photograph taken of you by the museum into a portrait layered with pop culture references. The result will be a chance to see yourself in a new light and through the eyes of others.

    • This winter, the AAM and Aspen Film present the Movies at the Museum program “Two Places,” featuring films that provide diverse perspectives on places that are often defined by stereotypes: Los Angeles and Tel Aviv. Complementing the nuanced looks at these places by AAM exhibiting artists Zoe Crosher and Thomas Struth, the pairing of a short film and feature-length film presents refreshing alternatives to clichéd representations of two global locations.
