On View: September 29, 2019–January 5, 2020 Lari Pittman started painting at a time when painting was pretty uncool.

On view: September 21, 2019–February 2, 2020 Walking into Max Hooper Schneider’s installation at The Hammer is like walking into a psychedelic aquarium — the central sculpture is a hodge podge landscape.

Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, 90024 United States

A new exhibition on view at both The Hammer and ICA LA, titled Witch Hunt, began with a simple question: “What does it mean to be feminist in the age of Donald Trump?” Although Trump is no longer president, Witch Hunt has been in the works curatorially since 2016, and the inequities that Trump’s presidency made painfully clear are still very much present. The show’s title is a reclaiming of a phrase that Trump tweeted 350 times throughout his presidency,…
