If you still haven’t checked out “Made in L.A. 2018” at the Hammer Museum at UCLA, this is your last chance. The fourth iteration of the Hammer’s free biennial exhibition ends Sunday, Sept. 2.
“Made in L.A. 2018” showcases emerging and under-recognized artists with ties to Los Angeles. Through drawings, paintings, sculptures, textiles and performances, the exhibition exemplifies the diverse and creative landscape of Los Angeles today. Many of the artists and their work highlight topics such as the current political climate, marginalization, the environment and the needs of the Los Angeles community.
On Saturday, Sept. 1, artist taisha paggett will present a series of solo and duet dances in dialogue with her “Made in L.A. 2018” installation from noon to 4 p.m. in the Hammer’s Nimoy Studio and courtyard. Engaging ideas of race, history and institutional representation, paggett will portray the liberating potential of black and brown bodies moving within the galleries and beyond.
Hammer events and exhibitions are always free and open to the public. The museum hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every weekday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Parking is available under the museum.
