The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy, featuring over 100 works from one of the greatest American sculptors of the twentieth century. Exploring the theme of geometry, this is the first major thematic exhibition of Smith’s work, as well as the first exhibition devoted to the artist on the West Coast in almost half a century, and includes some of his largest and most celebrated works. The show reveals a sculptor whose identity as part of the working class and exposure to progressive social movements informed his artistic career.

This exhibition was made possible by Alice and Nahum Lainer, the National Endowment for the Arts, Gagosian Gallery, and the Steven F. Roth Family Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Steaven K. and Judith G. Jones Foundation, Myron Laskin, Agnes Gund, Dorothy R. Sherwood, Terri and Michael Smooke, the Dedalus Foundation, Ellie and Mark Lainer, and the Lipman Family Foundation. This exhibition is supported by  an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
