Charles Long

January 30, 2011 - April 24, 2011



Charles Long inaugurated AIR 2011 with an interpretive piece for All of this and nothing, the Hammer Invitational, January 30 – April 24, 2011. Long is encouraging visitors to consider the works in the exhibition in different ways with a series of prompts stamped upon leaves, which visitors may pick up at the exhibition entrance and refer to throughout the show.


Public Engagement and AIR were established in 2009 thanks to a James Irvine Foundation Arts Innovation Fund grant. Via AIR, artists examine and respond to fundamental museum issues related to the visitor experience in an attempt to deepen the Hammer’s connection with its guests.
