Digital Archives

The Hammer Museum received a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in 2013 to develop web-based resources about significant past exhibitions and selected aspects of our collections. The resulting digital archives present a dynamic repository of research materials, including zoomable, high-resolution images of artworks, artist biographies, scholarly essays, exhibition documentation, and many other complementary resources. 


The Hammer Museum hosts the annual UCLA Art History Graduate Student Association Symposium every fall. We also host academic symposia in conjunction with select exhibitions.

Watch the recording of The Political Body in Latina and Latin American Art, a symposium that explored key themes in the 2017 exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985.
