The first Los Angeles biennial, "Made in L.A. 2012," organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with LAXART, was presented at the Hammer, LAXART, and the Department of Cultural Affairs Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park. The exhibition featured works by 60 artists, such as Pearl Hsiung, from the L.A. region, with an emphasis on emerging and under-recognized artists, and will debut new installations, videos, films, sculptures, performances, and paintings produced for the biennial. This exhibition offered a snapshot of the current trends and practices coming out of Los Angeles, one of the most active and energetic art communities worldwide.
