Music & Performance


Wednesday Apr 17, 2013 7:30 PM to 7:30 PM This is a past program

New York–based artist Suzanne Bocanegra channels her work through the actress Frances McDormand in this combination artist talk and performance. Exploring beauty, small town Texas, orthopedic surgery, and classical sculpture, Bocanegra and McDormand weave a tale of Titian, ballet, girls’ drill teams, rose queens, scoliosis, and the history of how artists are taught to make art.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Simms/Mann Family Foundation, The Brotman Foundation of California, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and all Hammer members.
