Lawrence Abu Hamdan: UCLA Department of Art Lecture

Artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan’s interest in sound and its intersection with politics originates from his background as a musician and facilitator of DIY music. Currently on view at the Hammer, his work has been shown at Kunsthalle St Gallen, Switzerland; the Showroom, London; and Casco, Utrecht, the Netherlands, and is part of the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Guggenheim, New York; the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, the Netherlands; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and Tate, London. 

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.

Public programs advancing social justice are presented by the Ford Foundation.

Digital presentation of Hammer public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
