Event Description

Familiar objects are transformed into poetic works of art in these sculptures produced since the early 1990s.
This exhibition from the Hammer Contemporary Collection explores the domestic as a subject, material, or process in sculpture produced since the early 1990s. The artists—Judie Bamber, Tom Burr, Tony Feher, Mike Kelley, Ry Rocklen, and Collier Schorr—begin with banal or familiar objects and forms, transforming them into poetic works of art through juxtaposition and subtle alteration. Their works sit, stand, or hang at human scale, suggesting touch and engagement and referencing the body through an intimate address to the viewer.
This exhibition is organized by chief curator Connie Butler with Emily Gonzalez-Jarrett, curatorial associate.
