REOPENING UPDATE: LBMA Downtown
We are delighted to share our forthcoming exhibition, Space as Presence with you. Unfortunately our announcement to reopen LBMA Downtown for in-person, by reservation-only came too soon, and our gallery doors will need to remain temporarily closed until further notice from local health authorities. We will continue to highlight these works online, and look forward to connecting with you there until we can meet again.

Patrick Angus: Voyeur
May 17, 2019 – September 8, 2019
This May, the Long Beach Museum of Art presents a large-scale retrospective of the work of American painter Patrick Angus (1953 – 1992). The expansive exhibition of paintings and works on paper allows intimate insights into the development of Angus’s body of work, revealing a window to his personal life and the New York City gay scene. In 1992, the artist died from complications related to AIDS. Since the first presentation of his work at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Germany, Angus’s artistic achievements have gained international attention. This survey of the artist’s work will be the first major museum exhibition in the United States.
