Artists and writers have long held a fascination with the Golem - a mythical character made from clay that is based in Jewish folklore.
The idea of an inanimate object that can be brought to life is a concept explored time and time again in modern cinema - and this is the subject of a new exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
Masterworks of Expressionist Cinema: The Golem and its Avatars is set to run from August 24 until January 19 next year and will include a wide variety of different work that has interpreted the Golem legend, including the 1920s film Der Golem: Wie er in die Welt kam.
Of course, LACMA is a brilliant venue to visit at any time of year, and if you're planning a stay in Los Angeles hotels, a great base to consider is the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles, which is just a quick 20-minute drive away.
Important images of Mexico captured through the work of Gabriel Figueroa will be on display at LACMA from September 2013 until February 2014.
The Power of Photography: National Geographic 125 Years opens at the Annenberg Space for Photography on October 26th.
