Opening Fall 2020


Made in L.A. 2020: a version brings together an intergenerational and interdisciplinary mix of artists, each of whom is contributing to L.A.'s vibrant art scene.

Since its inception in 2012, the Hammer Museum's Made in L.A. biennial has brought together local artists from a wide range of discipline. Under the direction of co-curators Myriam Ben Salah and Lauren Mackler, the 2020 iteration will be no exception. The Hammer's Ikechukwu Onyewuenyi, who has previously served with Performa and The Kitchen in New York, will assist in the organization of the 2020 biennial in the role of assistant curator for performance. Drawing inspiration from historical artist magazines, this book is not documentation of the artists' work, but rather serves as an additional venue for the exhibition. It includes images of the artists' studios, art made specifically for the pages of the book, as well as essays and conversations between artists and curators that weave together the conceptual through-lines of the show.

MYRIAM BEN SALAH is a Tunisian-French curator and writer based in Paris. She has been in charge of special projects and public programs at Palais de Tokyo from 2009 to 2016. She is currently the editor-at-large of Kaleidoscope Magazine, as well as the editor of FEB MAG, the publication of the Underground Museum in Los Angeles. In 2020, Ben Salah was appointed the executive director and chief curator of the Renaissance Society in Chicago. Her writings have appeared in numerous art publications including Artforum, Mousse, and Numéro.

LAUREN MACKLER is a French-American curator based in Los Angeles. She is the founder of Public Fiction, a forum for staging exhibitions, performances, and programs by contemporary artists and writers, as well as a print journal with the same mission. She is currently the managing editor of Sublevel, the literary magazine housed in the CalArts School of Critical Studies. Mackler is a regular contributor to Artforum and various other publications.
