Made in L.A. 2012: The Venice Beach Biennial

The first Los Angeles biennial, Made in L.A. 2012, organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with LA><ART, began this weekend. Exhibition locations include the Hammer Museum in Westwood, LAX Art in Culver City, the Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park in Hollywood, various billboards around town, as an iPhone application “soundmap” and also Venice Beach along the boardwalk from July 13th- 15th.

Made in LA

Made in L.A. features works by 60 artists from the L.A. region, with an emphasis on emerging and under-recognized artists, many of whom are debuting new installations, videos, films, sculptures, performances, and paintings produced for the biennial.

The Venice Beach Biennial (VBB), a weekend event that makes tongue-in-cheek reference to the “real” Venice Biennale in Italy, treats the famed Venice Beach boardwalk, Ocean Front Walk, as an outdoor exhibition venue.

Over the course of the weekend, some 25 to 30 artists will set up vending stands alongside the veteran boardwalk artists (someone should make a video documentary on how smoothly that goes down), exhibiting new bodies of work, collaborating with the veterans on new projects, displaying site-specific sculptures or installations and presenting live performances. The Venice Beach Biennial, funded by the Teiger Foundation, is presented in conjunction with Made in L.A. 2012 and directed by Hammer curator Ali Subotnick.
