KCRW Summer Nights with the Hammer Museum ft. Jackie Mendoza
Jul 27 • 6:30 pm PDT
Catch Jackie Mendoza on the courtyard on July 27th with KCRW DJs Valida and Jason Kramer serving up vibes. A happy hour with cash bar starts at 6:30 PM, so come early and visit the Hammer’s galleries, which will be open until 9:00 PM featuring Together in Time: Selections from the Hammer Contemporary Collection.
With her hypnotizing voice and vivid lyricism, Jackie Mendoza makes fantastical, intimate electro-pop propelled by ukulele-based dance grooves. Having grown up between her birthplace of Chula Vista, California and Tijuana, Mexico, the 29-year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist bridges these two worlds with dynamic soundscapes that pull from Latin pop, electronic music, and indie pop. She creates a musical universe that exists beyond strict borders of genre and geography, giving her the space to convey the intricacies of her experience as a queer, first-generation Mexican American woman.

ABOUT THE HAMMER
The Hammer Museum is part of the School of the Arts and Architecture at UCLA, and offers exhibitions and collections that span classic to contemporary art. It holds more than 50,000 works in its collection, including one of the finest collections of works on paper in the nation, the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts. Through a wide-ranging, international exhibition program and the biennial, Made in L.A., the Hammer highlights contemporary art since the 1960s, especially the work of emerging and under-recognized artists. The exhibitions, permanent collections, and nearly 300 public programs annually—including film screenings, lectures, symposia, readings, music performances, and workshops for families—are all free to the public.
Together in Time: Selections from the Hammer Contemporary Collection
Presented in conjunction with the unveiling of the Hammer’s building expansion, this exhibition is the largest presentation of the Hammer Contemporary Collection in the museum’s history. Occupying nearly all gallery spaces, Together in Time highlights works in a wide range of media by Los Angeles-based and international artists, including Njidecka Akunyili Crosby, Mark Bradford, Laura Owens, Kerry Tribe, and many more.
