The Hammer Museum is a fine arts museum and the public arts unit of the University of California, Los Angeles’s (UCLA) School of the Arts and Architecture. The Hammer champions the art and artists who challenge us to see the world in a new light, to experience the unexpected, to ignite our imaginations, and inspire change.
The funds will be used in support of Perfect Likeness: Photography and Composition, which will be the museum’s first major group show in many years that focuses on contemporary photography. The show will feature 20 international photographers, and aims to bring to light a new perspective on photography as a representational medium. The exhibition will run from June through September, 2015.
