Katrin Assmann

KATRIN ASSMANN

Katrin Assmann's misty landscapes and organic, subdued palette reflect a uniquely Californian atmosphere. The softly blended layers of paint create a visual effect reminiscent of old Polaroids and materialize the fleeting images of nostalgia and memory. Assmann moved to Los Angeles in 2003 and began using her growing collection of vintage found photographs from the flea markets of Los Angeles as inspiration. Katrin explores the imagery of a bygone California; a world very different from her hometown in Germany.

FEATURED ARTIST

Shinique Smith

SHINIQUE SMITH

Shinique Smith takes physical stock of fibreculture and the possibilities of line. Working widely across painting, drawing, collage, video and installation, Smith creates ecosystems of cooperative corporality. Her works evoke embodied artifacts with consciences of genteel street smarts. Graffiti, secondhand finds and neo-tribalism interact with Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Japanese calligraphy to create playful alterations between supertext and subtext, evoking the textile weaves of Smith’s oft-used materials themselves. In an exhaustive effort to process and restore culture, Smith creates menageries that glom high and lowbrow expressions and bury them at the human center.

FEATURED ARTIST

Marisa Merz

MARISA MERZ

Marisa Merz gained international prominence as part of the circle of artists associated with Arte Povera in the late 1960s. An avant-garde movement that rejected Italy’s material wealth in favor of “poor” materials, Arte Povera was identified with the radicalism of the student movement but proclaimed no stylistic or ideological credo except the negation of existing codes and art world limitations. Marisa Merz: The Sky Is a Great Space is the first US retrospective of the Italian painter, sculptor, and installation artist. Bringing together five decades of the artist’s work, the exhibition includes Merz’s early experiments with non-traditional materials and processes; the enigmatic heads and faces she created in the 1980s and 1990s; and her installations that balance intimacy with impressive scale. The exhibition is on view at the Hammer Museum from June 4 through August 20, 2017.
