Artist Talk: Nic Hess

Thursday Jul 16, 2009 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

For the Hammer's Lobby Wall, Swiss artist Nic Hess presents Automatic Crash Response, a mixture of images in tape ranging from tombstone-like monuments of several recently failed banks, animals, how-to exercise diagrams, a generic shopping cart, the USPS logo and more to weave a lyrical quasi-narrative left for the viewer to decode. Join us as Nic Hess discusses Automatic Crash Response, as well as his other works.

Followed by a Q&A.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss. 

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
