Hammer Museum

The Hammer Museums exhibitions and collections span classic to contemporary art, and its programs feature the most innovative thinkers of our time. Through a wide-ranging, international exhibition program and its biennial, the Hammer highlights contemporary art since the 1960s, especially the work of emerging and under-recognized artists.
Under Ann Philbin's direction, the Hammer Museum became a cultural force in Los Angeles. Its consistently robust programming makes it a bellwether for the city's art scene.
