Organized in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, "Home—So Different, So Appealing" features U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who have used the deceptively simple idea of "home" as a powerful lens through which to view the profound socioeconomic and political transformations in the hemisphere. The exhibition has traveled from LACMA to @mfahouston where you can now see it through January 21, 2018. #ThrowbackThursday #LACMAEverywhere

Remember the "Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters" exhibition? It's now on view at @agotoronto until January 7. Head to our Instagram story to see more photos of the exhibition. 👉 Pictured here: 1️⃣ Guillermo Del Toro’s Bleak House, photo ©️ Joshua White, J.W. Pictures 2️⃣ Unknown. Hidden Mothers, 1870s. Tintypes. Anonymous gift, 2009. Art Gallery of Ontario. On view @agotoronto 👻 In the late 1880s, a clear photographic image required 18-30 seconds of stillness. The best way to achieve this with squirming babies was to have their mother hold them – but rather than having both parent and child in the image, photographers covered the mother in a cloth. Viewers were meant to ignore the ghostly, shrouded figures looming behind the children. #GDTAGO #LACMAEverywhere #ThrowbackThursday
