Join us for a tour of "Tishan Hsu: Liquid Circuit" led by Curator Ralph Barlow at the Hammer Museum. This is the first US museum exhibition survey of retired faculty member Tishan Hsu's visionary work. The exhibition traces Hsu's key ideas and demonstrates how they clearly resonate in the works of younger artists coming of age today. In the mid-1980s, Hsu began a series of works that considered the implications of the accelerated use of technology and artificial intelligence, and their impact on the body and human condition. This survey brings together roughly 30 key sculptures, wall reliefs, drawings and media work from 1980 to 2005. The exhibition includes architectonic paintings and sculptures from the 1980s that considered the materiality of the image in the ever-expanding digital landscape; Hsu's first experiments in Photoshop that mark some of the earliest instances of artists using the newly available digital photo manipulation software; and a selection of the artist's drawings and other projects. The exhibition demonstrates Hsu's prophetic practice and exemplifies how art responds to and processes the pressing questions of its time. "Tishan Hsu: Liquid Circuit" reintroduces the work to a contemporary audience that has finally caught up with the issues he began to address over 30 years ago. Hsu's work is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main; High Museum, Atlanta; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami; and the Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis.

Join us for the East West Players production of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins. Assassins is a darkly comic Tony-award winning musical that examines the motives of the nine notorious Americans who took their shot at the President of the United States. This wickedly subversive spectacle explores the national fixation on celebrity and its violent intersection with the American dream. Founded in 1965, East West Players is committed to raising the visibility of the Asian American experience by presenting inventive world-class theatrical productions, developing artists of color, and providing impactful youth education programs. A limited number of tickets are available at discount for alumni. Register today.
