Attention Angelenos: LACMA's East Asian Art Council is kicking off April with a special talk, The Changing Landscape of the Chinese Art Market. Christie's Tina Zonars and Ingrid Dudek will address evolving tastes, shifts in collecting habits, and trends. The Sunday afternoon lecture is scheduled for 3 p.m. on April 1, and general admission is $10.
