DESCRIPTION

In 2005, the Hammer launched an exciting initiative to build a collection of contemporary art through both purchases and gifts. Acknowledging the breadth of mediums engaged by contemporary artists, this growing collection is comprised of works in drawing, film, painting, photography, sculpture, and video. While the Hammer Contemporary Collection has focused particular 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 works from the collection, the Hammer is proud to present several significant recent acquisitions including Glenn Kaino’s Untitled (Ricky Jay) (2010), Ordinary Magic (2010) by Siobhan Liddell, and Nancy Rubins’s monumental Drawing from 1975.

Organized by Ann Philbin, director; and Corrina Peipon, curatorial associate.
