A-Z West Works at the Hammer Store

April 26, 2018

The Hammer Store has a new A-Z West Works pop-up by Joshua Tree-based artist Andrea Zittel. The shop features a selection of works generated from A-Z West, the artist’s compound that serves as her home and testing grounds for living prototypes, and by High Desert Test Sites (HDTS), an arts nonprofit that promotes experimental exchanges in the High Desert.

In the Hammer Store through September 30, 2018, the A-Z West Works pop-up features a new line of products—A-Z West Works—alongside an array of one-of-a-kind ceramics, textiles, furnishings, books, snacks, tinctures, and clothing made by artists from Southern California’s High Desert community. The pop-up also hosts the annual High Desert Test Sites Gem/Mineral Expo—a spectacular array of stones sourced each year from Quartzsite, Arizona—as well as other HDTS Products including publications, postcards, and print editions. Proceeds from all HDTS rock and product sales will support HDTS projects and monthly programming.

"It’s so great to partner with the Hammer Store. It’s not only the perfect opportunity to highlight our new A-Z West Works, but also to showcase the amazing and talented community of artists who we work with both in the High Desert and beyond." —Andrea Zittel

Special A-Z West Works events and activations will take place at the Hammer Store throughout the spring and summer. More details will be announced on our website.
