Made in L.A., the Hammer Museum’s biennial exhibition, is now on view through September 7th. Featuring works by 35 Los Angeles artists, many of whom are emerging and under recognized talents, the exhibition debuts recent work and new painting, installation, video, sculpture, photography, and performances created specifically for the show.
As part of this local showcase, which I can’t wait to check out in a couple weeks, the Hammer has teamed up with KCRW to present four nights of free live music in the museum’s courtyard. Check out the impressive line up:
July 10, 2014
The Do-Over w/De Lux + Mystery Guest DJs + KCRW DJ Mathieu Schreyer
July 17, 2014
An Evening of Community Music w/ crash + The Shoe + My Hawaii + KCRW DJ Liza Richardson, hosted by Alex Ebert
July 24, 2014
Afro Funke’ w/ Rocky Dawuni + KCRW DJ Jeremy Sole & DJ Glenn Red

Since the galleries featuring Made in L.A. 2014 are open late on these evenings, you’ll have the opportunity to take in the artwork and enjoy great music all in one place. For a preview of the show, watch this video.
