Los Angeles's Hammer Museum has announced the name of the 35 artists who will be participating in its second Made in L.A. biennial. Focusing on artists working in the Los Angeles area, the exhibition will run June 15-Sept. 7.
The Hammer's chief curator, Connie Butler, organized Made in L.A. 2014 with independent curator Michael Ned Holte. Featuring painting, installation, video, sculpture, photography and performance by emerging and under-known artists, much of it created specifically for the show, Made in L.A. will take up the entirety of the museum. A catalogue and a series of free public programs will accompany the exhibition.
In a press release, Hammer director Annie Philbin expressed confidence in the city's artistic community's ability to maintain an ongoing biennial series: "Michael and Connie have visited hundreds of studios and will tell you they have only scratched the surface—there is so much going on here."
