Made in L.A.
Time Out says
The Hammer Museum’s excellent, ongoing series of biennial exhibitions ups the ante each year with its spotlight on emerging and under-recognized L.A. artists, and the fifth edition is no exception.
The list of 30 artists includes practitioners across all sorts of mediums: Kahlil Joseph’s impactful two-channel BLKNWS® videos, Buck Ellison’s imagined portraits of American wealth, Christina Forrer’s colorfully transgressive tapestries, Aria Dean’s mirrored dance box, Reynaldo Rivera’s snapshots of East L.A.’s queer scene in the ’80s and and Sabrina Tarasoff’s haunted house-like homage to Venice’s bygone Beyond Baroque Literary Art Center.
For those Eastsiders scared of venturing too close to the 405, this year the Hammer has partneried with the Huntington Library to present works from all of the artists at the San Marino institution, as well. We’d suggest swinging by the Hammer first; members and visitors to the Hammer will receive free passes to the Huntington to see the rest of the exhibition.
