Brian Weil, 1979–95: Being in the World

The Hammer, in collaboration with the Santa Monica Museum of Art and its presentation of Brian Weil, 1979–95: Being in the World, hosts a series of programs exploring the invisible communities that the extraordinary photographer sought to illuminate in his photographs.

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, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
