For the third year, the Hammer Museum and the UCLA Department of Art welcome LA Weekly art critic Doug Harvey and other archivists of found media, presenting a selection of films, videos, and slides rescued from the obscurity of thrift stores, swap meets, and dumpsters.
The evening includes excerpts from recent and upcoming programs by the Coalition for Cinematic Conservation and Preservation at The Echo Park Film Center, including an educational filmstrip on the wonders of the banana, vintage Asian and Indian music videos, and the classic ABC of Sex Education for Trainables. This year’s guest curators include media art dynamic duo Animal Charm along with Geoff Haas, Joe Pickett, and Nick Prueher, curators of Brooklyn’s Found Footage Festival.
ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE
Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, and an anonymous donor.
