POSTPONED: Take Two: Christopher Richmond

Thursday Jun 4, 2020 5:00 PM This is a past program

We have postponed this online program in light of the protests in Los Angeles and across the nation in support of Black lives. The program will be rescheduled soon.

Read our public statement about how we are planning to support the community-led organizations who are doing daily, on-the-ground anti-racist work.

A conversation between Los Angeles–based video artist Christopher Richmond and Hammer Museum curatorial assistant Nicholas Barlow.

Working across film, video, photography, and drawing, Richmond deals with the realms of alternate realities, metaphysical conundrums, and space travel, using the conventions of science fiction and cinema as both framework and subject matter.
