In 2005\, the Hammer launched an exciting initiative to build a collecti
on of contemporary art through both purchases and gifts. Acknowledging the
breadth of mediums engaged by contemporary artists\, this growing collectio
n is comprised of works in drawing\, film\, painting\, photography\, sculpt
ure\, and video. While the Hammer Contemporary Collection has focused parti
cular attention on artists from Southern California\, it is also dedicated
to the acquisition of works by artists working throughout the United States
and internationally. In this installment of our series of exhibitions of w
orks from the collection\, the Hammer is proud to present several significa
nt recent acquisitions including Glenn Kaino’s Untitle
d (Ricky Jay) (2010)\, Ordinary Magic (2010) by Siobh
an Liddell\, and Nancy Rubins’s monumental Dr
awing from 1975.
Organized by Ann Philbin\, director\; and Corrina Peipon\, curatorial assoc iate.
