In the 1960s, Garcia Marquez, Vargas Llosa, and Cortazar epitomized what was called "the Boom" in Latin-American literature. Inspired by exhibitions of Mexico City-based artists Mario Garcia Torres and Pedro Reyes (and the upcoming Pacific Standard Time initiative devoted to Latin America), the club will tackle the 1958 debut novel where El Boum arguably began: Carlos Fuentes' classic of Mexico City, Where the Air Is Clear.

Part of the curatorial department, the Public Engagement program collaborates with artists to develop and present works that create an exchange with the institution and with visitors. Enacted both inside and outside the galleries, Public Engagement projects range from re-envisioned security guard uniforms to library and orchestra residencies. The Hammer Museum's Public Engagement program is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
