Michael Govan talks with W. Richard West, Jr., president and CEO of the Autry Museum of the American West, about an innovative partnership between LACMA and the Autry. Inspired by both museums’ renowned and complementary collections—spanning from the ancient to the contemporary, and including art of the ancient Americas at LACMA and the Autry's native North American cultural materials—the partnership will facilitate collections sharing, curatorial collaborations, scholarly research, and thoughtful programming. Govan and West discuss this new initiative and the evolving, increasingly collaborative approach of museums in the 21st century.

This event took place January 9, 2018 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
