About the exhibit:

"The exhibition examines football—nicknamed "the beautiful game" by one sports commentator—and its signficance in societies around the world. As a subject, football touches on issues of nationalism and identity, globalism and mass spectacle, as well as the common human experience shared by spectators from many cultures. Celebrating the sport on the eve of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the exhibition includes approximately thirty artists from around the world who work in video, photography, painting and sculpture."

 

The exhibit opens February 2, 2014.  Learn more about the exhibit here: http://www.lacma.org/art/exhibition/futbol-beautiful-game
