Imitation of Christ

Hammer Museum
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 to Sunday, August 18, 2013

For the latest installment of the Hammer's Houseguest series, artist William E. Jones curates an installation built around a photograph of an injured Nicaraguan guerilla fighter taken by Pedro Moyer in the 1980s. The exhibit questions the nature of religion and revolution, teasing out the interplay between nudity, trauma, and war in a collection drawn from the Hammer and UCLA archives.
