The University of California Institute for Research in the Arts supports embedded arts research through critical exchange

Public Engagement – Corey Fogel

Musician and performance artist Corey Fogel will be installed in the Hammer Museum lobby throughout the day 11-9pm on June 30 with his drum kit, objects, textiles, and food, transforming the performance area into a den of musical, gestural and visual offerings. He will create an improvised work that will evolve throughout the day based on his thoughts and emotions as they emerge, while also responding to the presence of visitors and the energy of the space. The work is continual and has a non-linear structure so viewers may enter and exit at any time; they decide how long to watch and engage.

Museum admission is FREE every Thursday for all visitors.
