Amy Murphy designs new LACMA exhibit

 

The new LACMA Art+Film Exhibit, “Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s,” was featured in the L.A. Times and The Daily Trojan. This exhibit on German Expressionism was designed by USC Architecture professor Amy Murphy and her husband Michael Maltzan (who was the School's 2009 Nancy M. & Edward D. Fox Urban Design Critic and the 2002 Jon Adams Jerde, FAIA Visiting Design Professor in Architecture). Professor Murphy was hired through a connection with USC alumna Victoria Behner ‘95 who is a senior exhibit designer at LACMA and a lecturer at the School. Coincidentally, Behner was a student in the first class Professor Murphy taught at USC.

 

The exhibit runs from September 21, 2014 to April 26, 2015. Read more about the exhibit here and here. Get exhibit information and tickets here.
