Made in L.A. 2014 is the second in an ongoing series of biennial exhibitions focused on work created by artists in the Los Angeles region.  Made in L.A. 2014 will be on view until September 7, 2014 at the Hammer Museum and features 35 artists with an emphasis on emerging and under-recognized artists.

Made in L.A. 2014 is installed in every gallery of the museum and has debuted recent work and new painting,  installation, video, sculpture, photography, and performances created specifically for the exhibition. There are 11 major new commissions for the exhibition and every artist has received an honorarium. The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive hardcover catalogue, as well as a full roster of free public programming.  Made in L.A. 2014 is organized by Hammer chief curator Connie Butler and independent curator Michael Ned Holte.

“When we initiated this series focused on L.A. we knew each incarnation would be uniquely different and that the vast and varied artist community in this city could absolutely sustain a large-scale ongoing biennial,” says Hammer Museum director Annie Philbin. “Like the curators in 2012, Michael and Connie have visited hundreds of studios and will tell you they have only scratched the surface—there is so much going on here. We are committed to supporting this extraordinary creative community and helping to foster its continued growth and success.”
