Charles Ray: If You Can Read This You Are Dead

The Los Angeles-based artist Charles Ray reads a selection of ghost stories and tales to do with haunted objects in this unique program developed with Hammer curator Aram Moshayedi. Known for his enigmatic sculptures, Ray is also a UCLA Department of Art professor emeritus and his “career as an artist…is easily among the most important of the last twenty years” (Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times).

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.
