The Wende Museum

The Wende Museum and ESMoA partnered in 2013 and 2016. Founder and Executive Director Justin Jampol and Chief curator Joes Siegel of the Wende Museum created Experience 5: FAME and Experience 21: PLAN. Wende Museum preserves Cold War art, culture, and history from the Soviet Bloc countries, inspires a broad understanding of the period, and explores its enduring legacy. The Museum’s location in Los Angeles provides independence and critical distance from current political debates in Europe, and also facilitates the questioning of preconceived ideas about our past and present. Moreover, the Museum’s physical remoteness from Central and Eastern Europe has enabled it to attract significant artifacts and collections that might otherwise have been destroyed as a result of emotional and political reactions.


Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

LACMA and ESMoA partnered in 2015.  Director Michael Govan and assistant curator Nana Bahlman of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art created Experience 17: STUDIO and the book “Studio”. Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles’s uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes nearly 130,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present, encompassing the geographic world and nearly the entire history of art.
