Christina Forrer in Dirty Protest: Selections from the Hammer Contemporary Collection

Christina Forrer, Woman with Waves Coming Out of Her Mouth, 2014, cotton and wool.

Christina Forrer is included in Dirty Protest, a group show highlighting recent acquisitions to the Hammer Museum's Contemporary Collection. The exhibition is on view through May 19th.

The Hammer Contemporary Collection continues to grow through purchases and generous gifts from patrons and artists. This core collection comprises works in drawing, film, painting, photography, sculpture, and video made by artists from around the world, with an emphasis on Southern California and the networks of artists who are based here as well as those for whom Los Angeles is a nexus of activity. The highlighted acquisitions in this presentation underlie the Hammer’s commitment to the breadth of mediums engaged by contemporary artists, including video installation, new media, and works on paper.

Taken from the title of a 2015 painting by Tala Madani, this lively mix of painting, sculpture, drawings, and multimedia installations features the work of more than 30 international established and emerging artists.
