Connie Butler & Michael Ned Holte, Made in LA 2014
Clocktower Los Angeles Correspondent Becca Lieb interviews the curators of the 2014 Made In LA Biennial, Connie Butler and Michael Ned Holte, along with two of the artists from the exhibition, Ricky Swallow and Jennifer Moon. The group discusses Jennifer's unrealized proposal to jump off the roof of the Hammer Museum, as well as Harry Dodge's love for the word "profusion." Michael has a taste of his own medicine when he answers the questions that he posed in his Artforum slam of the 2012 Biennial.
The Hammer Museum is one of three public arts units of the School of Arts and Architecture at UCLA. Its biennial exhibition Made in L.A. 2014 features works by 35 Los Angeles artists with an emphasis on emerging and under-recognized artists. It debuts recent work and new painting, installation, video, sculpture, photography, and performances created specifically for the exhibition. Made in L.A. 2014 is installed in every gallery at the Hammer Museum. The exhibition is organized by Hammer Chief Curator Connie Butler and independent curator Michael Ned Holte, and is accompanied by a comprehensive hardcover catalogue, as well as a full roster of free public programming.
