Unpacking the Universe: The Making of an Exhibition is a documentary series that follows the six-year journey of LACMA’s curators’ researching, developing, and installing The Portable Universe. The series allows us to be transparent about how the team facilitated a collaborative process with the Arhuaco community in Colombia and curators at different institutions and kept this spirit of collaboration alive in the way the exhibition was installed.

Around 900 years ago, a Maya scribe made the Códice Maya de México, a sacred book that tracked and predicted movements of the planet Venus. Today it is the oldest book of the Americas, one of only four surviving Maya manuscripts that predate the arrival of Europeans. A remarkable testament to the complexity of Indigenous astronomy, the Codice on display in the US for the first time in 50 years.
Most works of art have frames because they serve a purpose, separating the realm of creation from the everyday world. But the frame is also a limitation, not only on creation but also on perception. The Latin American works in this exhibition transcend the frame. Cost: Adults – $15, Seniors & Students – $10, Members and Children under – 12 Free
