Made in L.A. 2014

August 14, 2014

The second version of the Los Angeles biennial Made in LA 2014 allows visitors to experience the multifaceted LA art scene and is worth a visit. Check out Samara Golden’s changing installation of portraits of friends on doll heads and Piero Golia carving George Washington’s nose out of Styrofoam. The two organizers, Hammer Museum Chief Curator Connie Butler and independent curator Michael Ned Holte, made the smart decision to occupy the entire Hammer versus multiple venues. Also new this year is the participation of the local radio station KCHUNG and courtyard performances by the James Kidd dance studio. Other highlights include works by: Clarissa TossinTala Madani, Caitlin Lonegan, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess and Michael Frimkess, and Juan Capistrán.
