Once, all continents formed a single whole. Then they drifted apart. We propose to undo LACMA's "continental" separation. Imagine an almost utopian condition where the history of the arts can be told as a single and simultaneous narrative showing moments of chronological coincidence, autonomy, influence and convergence. After decades where accommodating the "modern" led to a situation of glut and fatigue, the idea of the all-embracing has a new appeal.
