In 1965 architect Frank Gehry embarked on his first exhibition design with LACMA’s “Art Treasures from Japan,” shown here in this archival photo. Gehry’s sensitive design featured elements of Japanese architecture—for example, rock gardens, wood post-and-beam construction for the barriers protecting sculptures, and dedicated niches for the artwork. Fifty years and 11 LACMA exhibitions later, the museum asked Gehry, on the occasion of his retrospective, to once again design a presentation of Japanese art, resulting in “Screens, Scrolls, and Prints: Japanese Art from LACMA’s Collection,” which is currently on view in the Resnick Pavilion through Sunday, March 20.
