For her Hammer residency, Anila Rubiku engaged with various communities in Los Angeles through weekly art-making workshops. Through this work, Rubiku sought to create lasting relationships between herself, the Hammer Museum, and participants while also providing a deeper experience of the museum. These workshops involved meeting with the artist and creating a drawing of each participant’s “ideal home,” which will also be embroidered and used as part of a larger installation by the artist. Through this, Rubiku hopes to illustrate and understand how various community members imagine what that home should be. She has lead similar workshops in Niigata, Japan; Milan; and Tel Aviv.

The Hammer Museum’s Artist Residency Program is supported through a generous grant from The Simms/Mann Family Foundation. The residency program was initiated with funding from the Nimoy Foundation and receives continued support from The James Irvine Foundation.
