Lunchtime Art Talk on Paul McCarthy

Wednesday Feb 5, 2020 12:30 PM This is a past program

Lunchtime Art Talks take place every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The Hammer's curatorial department leads free and insightful 15-minute discussions about works of art currently on view or from museum collections.

This talk on Paul McCarthy's Father, Sleep, Hospital (1990) is led by curatorial assistant Nick Barlow.

All 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 Elizabeth Bixby Janeway Foundation, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.
 
Readings are supported by GRoW @ Annenberg.
 
Digital presentation of Hammer public programs is made possible by The Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
 
Hammer public programs are presented online in partnership with the #KeepThePromise campaign—a movement promoting social justice and human rights through the arts.
