hammer_museum Did you see the feature on #MadeinLA artists Michael Frimkess and Magdalena Suarez Frimkess in the New York Times today? "The expressive, comics-inspired pottery of the husband-and-wife team [...] has become a sleeper hit of the Hammer Museum’s biennial, thanks to a younger generation of local artists who have been bringing it to light." 6d

hammer_museum "I like [L.A.] because it is strange. It is many cities and many things at once and there is no unifying custom or pattern. There also seems to be an ease about it that I thought would help me be productive and enjoy work." -#MadeinLA artist Gabriel Kuri 7d

hammer_museum "When I was living in New York, I had a lot of fantasies about what moving to L.A. would be: the flowers, the succulent plants, the beach, the lizards, the sunsets...all of that exists, but it is butted up against the streets of homeless people in wheel chairs missing limbs, and people jumping from the roofs of welfare hotels, I see it as a city of contradiction. For me I wanted to disappear in a way...sometimes the gaps between things are an invisible magic.” -#MadeinLA artist Samara Golden, now on our blog 2w
