The UCLA Hammer Museum and LA><Art have announced the artists for the Biennial exhibition Made in L.A. June 2 - Sept 2. Otis artists are well-represented, including Fine Arts Chair Meg Cranston, Graduate Fine Arts Chair Roy Dowell, alumni Vincent Ramos ('02) and Mario Ybarra ('99), faculty members Michele O’Marah and Joel Otterson, and 2011 Boardman Visiting Artist Ruby Neri.
"For over a decade, every two years, the Hammer has mounted an Invitational exhibition. With Made in L.A. what we are essentially doing is clarifying this pattern and calling it what it is—a biennial—a word that everyone seems to understand," remarks Hammer Director Annie Philbin. "Our decision to focus exclusively on L.A. artists reinforces our ongoing commitment to the creative community that makes this city so vibrant."
Made in L.A. 2012 is organized by Hammer Senior Curator Anne Ellegood and curator Ali Subotnick with LA><ART Director and Chief Curator Lauri Firstenberg, Associate Director and Senior Curator Cesar Garcia, and curator-at-large Malik Gaines. Over the last 16 months, they visited hundreds of studios and galleries to narrow down their selections.A separate Venice Beach Biennial wil take place July 13-15, and billboards, public performances, and site-specific installations will be created at the Municipal Art Gallery, Barnsdall Park.
