ONLINE: Lunchtime Art Talk on Zarina

  • This is a past program

While the museum is temporarily closed, Lunchtime Art Talks take place online every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The Hammer's curatorial department leads free, insightful, short discussions about works of art from the Hammer's collection.

This talk on Zarina’s "The Cities Blotted into the Wilderness (Adrienne Rich after Ghalib)", a portfolio of nine woodcuts from 2003, is led by Allegra Pesenti, associate director and senior curator of the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts.

Pesenti organized the 2012 Hammer exhibition Zarina: Paper Like Skin, featuring approximately 60 works dating from 1961 to 2011. It was the first museum retrospective of the Indian-born American artist, who passed away in April 2020.

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, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.
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.
