Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

If you haven't had the chance to make it out to Pacific Standard Time, don't worry, you can still get your L.A. art on in a serious way. The Hammer Museum, in collaboration with LAXART, has announced its first biennial, Made in L.A., showcasing 60 local up-and-coming artists. The exhibition will feature video, installation, performance art, painting and sculpture, and works will be shown at Barnsdall Park in addition to the Hammer and LAXART, which is located in Culver City.

In a statement, Hammer Director Annie Philbin said that keeping it local was a very deliberate choice.

"Our decision to focus exclusively on L.A. artists reinforces our ongoing commitment to the creative community that make this city so vibrant," she said.

The idea for Made in L.A. emerged from a decade's worth of exhibitions at the Hammer that focused on under-recognized local artists, including Snapshot, International Paper and All of this and nothing.
