DESCRIPTION

Dara Friedman explores notions of performativity, urban space, and the individual in the public sphere in her poetic films and videos. Friedman’s work has been the subject of one person exhibitions at venues such as the Miami Art Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Kitchen, New York; and Site Santa Fe, Santa Fe, NM. Her work has been included in recent group shows at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany; MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. A new work, Dancer, is currently on view at the Hammer through April 14.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Assigned seating is available in the Billy Wilder Theater. Free tickets are required and available at the Box Office, one ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Members enjoy priority seating and seat selection, subject to availability. Membership does not guarantee seating. Arrival at least one half hour prior to program time is recommended.

Parking is available under the museum for a flat fee of $3 after 6PM.

The UCLA Department of Art’s visiting lecture series is made possible through the generous support of the William D. Feldman Family Endowed Art Lecture Fund.

Public programs are made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA.

Generous support is also provided by Hammer members; Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy; the Simms/Mann Family Foundation; Bronya and Andrew Galef; Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley; and an anonymous donor.
