Artist Talk: Aaron Morse

Tuesday Mar 18, 2014 This is a past program
Aaron Morse is a Los Angeles-based artist whose paintings depict epic collages of imagery derived from sources as divergent as 20th-century American politics, 19th-century Romantic literature, comics, art historical painting genres, and current events. Morse weaves these various themes together to fabricate symbolic, alternative worlds in which time and history seem at once recognizable and otherworldly. For the Hammer Museum’s lobby walls, Morse has created Timeline, a monumental wallpaper design, printed and reworked by hand-painting. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, Ann and Jerry Moss, and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee. Hammer Lectures are supported, in part, by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
