French artist Cyprien Gaillard will take part in the Hammer’s Artist Residency Program sponsored in part by FLAX. Gaillard will be given the opportunity to dictate the content, format and direction of his residency. This freedom has been prized by artists, enabling them to realize complex or experimental work.
The Hammer’s Artist Residency Program has been instrumental in helping artists from around the world gain greater exposure in Los Angeles and throughout the United States. The program gives artists access to the Museum and Los Angeles’s unique resources—a dynamic environment, vibrant art scene, world-class research university and diverse metropolis.
Gaillard’s work spans a variety of media and includes performance and large-scale interventions in public space. Born in 1980 in Paris, recent exhibitions include the Tate Modern, London; Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong; the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York City, NY; Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris, and the Berlin Biennale für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Berlin.
