Report on The Silver Strand Art Group tour of Made in LA exhibition at the Hammer Museum on August 9, 2012

The Silver Strand Art Group toured the first Los Angeles biennial, Made in L.A. 2012, organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with LAXART. The exhibition featured works by 60 artists from the L.A. region, with an emphasis on emerging and under-recognized artists.

Among the many exciting works seen by the group was this powerful installation by Meleko Mokgosi, an 30 year-old artist born in Botswana who now calls Los Angeles home. Mokgosi was the winner of this year’s $100,000 Mohn Award funded by collectors Jari and Pamela Mohn.  The exhibition was juried by four curators who narrowed the candidates for the prize down to 5 artists. The final vote was made by museum visitors.

The exhibition runs through September 2, 2012. The next Biennal will take place in 2014.
