Join ArtTable for a walk-through of "Made in L.A. 2018," the fourth iteration of the Hammer's biennial exhibition, with its organizers, senior curator Anne Ellegood and recently appointed assistant curator Erin Christovale.

The exhibition highlights the practice of 32 artists based in L.A. and its surrounding area, with a primary focus on emerging artists. After making more than 200 studio visits, as well as visiting numerous museum and gallery exhibitions during their research, the curators selected artists who span a wide range of mediums and concerns, although there are shared interests and areas of exploration. While the exhibition is not overtly political, reflecting on the impact of the current political climate on the body and/or the landscape are frequent themes. The relationship of ritual and ceremony to ancient forms of knowledge and how they can be re-imagined in the present is another shared concern, as is the desire to create visibility for the marginalized. Whether producing textiles, performances, paintings, videos, sculptures, assemblages, photographs, or installations, the artists featured in "Made in L.A. 2018" are deeply engaged with vital aspects of our culture today and believe in art's capacity to engage social discourse. Among the artists represented are those who recently received their MFAs, like Nikita Gale, Christina Quarles, and Aaron Fowler, and mid-career artists, such as James Benning, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Charles Long, John Houck, and Linda Stark. "Made in L.A. 2018" debuts new videos, films, performances, and more specially commissioned for the exhibition and includes several site-specific works.
