In Real Life: 100 Days of Film and Performance

Exhibition Website

Sep 13 2016 - Jan 26 2017

Hammer Museum

Los Angeles, CA

This fall an ambitious program of daytime performances and film screenings activates the museum’s courtyard, annex, and Billy Wilder Theater. In Real Life includes four month-long curated film and video series, 15 weekends of performances and durational, immersive works, and weekday rehearsals by a select group of performers in disciplines including theater, dance, music, and experimental recitation.

In Real Life: Studio provides a glimpse into the working processes of artists. Throughout the fall a select group of artists utilizes a courtyard stage to convene and rehearse new material, including theater, dance, music, and performance. While some artists and collectives will simply discuss or workshop material, others will produce a new project from rehearsal to final performance. 

In Real Life: Film & Video: Throughout the fall the Hammer’s Billy Wilder Theater hosts curated film and video programs. Four thematic programs will screen consecutively and are organized in collaboration with local and international artists, independent curators, and arts organizations.

In Real Life: Performance showcases new and re-staged works by artists and performers working in a range of disciplines from theater, dance, and music to experimental recitation, and comedy, taking place most weekends in the Hammer's courtyard, annex, and Billy Wilder Theater.
