Another Awesome City-Wide Art Exhibition: 'Made in L.A.'
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.
The show will run from June 2, 2012 - September 2, 2012.
