Hammer Highlights 2015: Curatorial Jams
A playlist inspired by the Hammer Museum 2015 exhibition calendar and compiled by the junior curatorial team.
Hammer Highlights 2015: Technology
Hammer Highlights is a blog series that features the past year's most memorable moments and stories from each of our departments.
Hammer Highlights 2015: Exhibition Publications
The Hammer Museum has a long publication history and this past year was particularly active. Since 1990 we have published over 50 catalogues, with the most recent six produced between September 2014 and October 2015. Many people ask us how we determine when to publish a book. Our curatorial team considers a number of factors, such as scope of the exhibition, availability of current scholarship on the subject, exhibition budget and schedule.
On View at the Café: Victoria Fu
Interested in the relationship of the body to technology, Victoria Fu creates videos that evoke a sense of tactility. A disembodied hand peels back and paints over layers of imagery that seem unending. In filming her videos, Fu digitally composites surfaces and objects from the studio with virtual spaces, turning a solid body into a portal.
