The Museum offers free admission to all exhibitions, collections, and public programs from Memorial Day to Labor Day
From Memorial Day to Labor Day (May 30 through September 3, 2006), the Hammer Museum offers free admission to its exhibitions, collections, and public programs as part of Free Summer. Due to the wildly popular response to 2005's Free Summer, the Museum has again waived admission during the summer months to give Los Angeles residents even greater access to the Hammer's outstanding exhibitions, resourceful collections, and full slate of engaging public programs.
Free Summer at the Hammer also marks the beginning of new collaborations with Indie 103.1FM and Los Angeles Film Festival, which add more variety to an already enriching summer schedule. Programs featured during Free Summer include outdoor concerts and film screenings, readings for children, and lectures, conversations, and discussions on popular culture, politics, and the arts.
Temporary exhibitions on view during Free Summer include The Societe Anonyme: Modernism for America (through August 20), the acclaimed exhibition that charts the development of one of the greatest collections of modern art in America with 240 works by over 100 artists; Hammer Projects by artists Jesper Just (through July 2); Walead Beshty (through July 23); Monique van Genderen (through July 30); Elliott Hundley (through August 27); Animations: Nathalie Djurberg, Brent Green, and David Shrigley & Chris Shepherd (opening July 8); Angela Dufresne (opening July 29); and Christine Nguyen (opening August 17). In addition, the Armand Hammer Collection, which is always on view at the Museum, is free of charge.
June 2- July 8, 2006 Artist’s Opening Reception: Friday, June 2, 7 – 9 pm
M+B is pleased to present Nowhere Anywhere, an exhibition of photography by Paris-based artist Peter Klasen. Coming to Los Angeles after it’s inaugural exhibition at the Maison Européene de la Photographie in Paris in the Fall of 2006, this exhibition takes us—for the first time—into the fascinating world of the photos Klasen has taken over the past 30 years, which have served as the basis for the concretization of his paintings.
