John Outterbridge: Rag Man

Exhibition Website

Jul 1 2016 - Oct 16 2016

Raised in a community steeped in creativity as a part of everyday life and characterized by a strong ethos to save and recycle, artist John Outterbridge has been making sculpture from found and discarded materials and debris—including rags, rubber, and scrap metal—for more than fifty years. The exhibition John Outterbridge: Rag Man was organized by the Hammer Museum and initially presented at Art + Practice (cofounded by artist Mark Bradford, social activist Allan DiCastro, and philanthropist and collector Eileen Harris Norton) in Leimert Park, Los Angeles. Focusing on work made since 2000, the show features sculptures and assemblages composed of materials such as tools, twigs, bone, and hair.
