Earlier this month I visited the Hammer Museum for the first time to see Made In L.A. This exhibition includes work by 60 Los Angeles based artists shown at three locations across the city. I only attended the Hammer location, but there is additional work at LA >< ART in the Culver City art district, and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park in Los Feliz.
The Hammer is such a serene location, and the art was pretty damn interesting. It was a bit of a scavenger hunt to find the various featured artists throughout the museum, but that just made it more fun for me. It was most exciting and refreshing to see a very unique tone emerge from these rising L.A. artists. This show definitely shed some new light on the expansion and evolution of the L.A. art scene. If you’re in the area, I suggest checking it out.
