Hammer Museum at UCLA

Pasadena Art Alliance

The Hammer Museum at UCLA believes in the promise of art and ideas to illuminate our lives and build a more just world. It 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. A vibrant intellectual and creative nexus, the Hammer is fueled by dynamic exhibitions and programs—including lectures, symposia, film series, readings, and musical performances—that spark meaningful encounters with art and ideas.

The PAA will help support the Hammer Projects featuring artists, Ho Tzu Nyen and noe olivas on view in the spring of 2022. Hammer Projects provide a dedicated gallery space for the work and ideas of emerging artists. Nyen’s presentation is a video and sound installation that explores the political narrative in the Korean Peninsula. Olivas, co-founder of the Crenshaw Dairy Mart, an artist collective in South Los Angeles, will create a garden installation, with handmade pots and large-scale sculptures.
