In Real Life: Studio provides a glimpse into the working processes of artists. Throughout the fall a select group of artists utilizes spaces in the museum to convene and rehearse new material, including theater, dance, music, and performance. While some artists and collectives will simply discuss or workshop material, others will produce a new project from rehearsal to final performance. 

Project Statement

Jasmine Nyende will be using the Studio stage to develop a project she will present as part of SORORITY at the Hammer on December 3 and 4, 2016.


Jasmine Nyende is a new media and performance artist from South Central Los Angeles. Her work revolves around social media and deleted posts, the shame in public memory and the ephemerality of beauty. She sees her art as a never-ending attempt to take the perfect selfie. Jasmine is currently writing a book of poems entitled Tension about a family. She runs a radio show on KCHUNG Radio and publishes the art & poetry zine Fit Form Function.

In Real Life: Studio is a Public Engagement project organized by January Parkos Arnall, curatorial associate, Public Engagement.

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.
