World War I: War of Images, Images of War

Through April 19, 2015 | The Getty Center
In the first war fought by a generation of modern artists, culture was an integral part of the conflict, with sketchbooks and magazine covers forming a parallel series of battlefields to the Western and Eastern Fronts. World War I: War of Images, Images of War examines the visual legacy of the Great War via the representation of war in propaganda and its depiction by artists who experienced the brutality firsthand.

Experts lead gallery tours Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 p.m. through April 16, 2015, with the exception of April 7, 2015.

Dance of the Maize God

Video of Febraury 1, 2015, Film Screening and Discussion
While thousands of Maya vases have flooded into public and private collections over the last 50 years, the race to obtain them has destroyed ancient temples. The documentary Dance of the Maize God (2014, 96 min.) explores Maya life and mythology, as well as the issues involved in the collection and study of looted art. This event was related to the GRI's 2014/2015 Scholar Year theme, Object—Value—Canon, and was made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
