Made in L.A. 2012
Los Angeles—The Hammer Museum presents Made in L.A., the first in an ongoing series of exhibitions focused on artwork created in the Los Angeles region. Made in L.A. 2012, organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with LA>
Made in L.A. 2012 is organized by a team of curators from both institutions including Hammer Senior Curator Anne Ellegood, Hammer Curator Ali Subotnick, LA><ART Director Lauri Firstenberg, LA><ART Associate Director and Senior Curator Cesar Garcia, and LA><ART Curator-at-large Malik Gaines. The exhibition will debut new installations, videos, films, sculptures, performances, and paintings commissioned specifically for the exhibition and will offer a snapshot of the current trends and practices coming out of Los Angeles, one of the most active and energetic art communities in the world.
Made in L.A. 2012 will also include the Venice Beach Biennial, from July 13 – 15, 2012, made possible through the generous support of the Teiger Foundation. For this unconventional and slightly unpredictable project directed by Ali Subotnick, the Venice Beach boardwalk will become a readymade exhibition space inspired by the Arsenale at the “real” Venice Biennale. Over the course of the weekend, 40 to 50 artists will collaborate with boardwalk artists, creating new bodies of work, displaying site specific sculptures and/or installations, and presenting performances along the boardwalk.
