The Hammer Museum, which is located on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles, will be exhibiting the works of Llyn Foulkes until May 19, 2013.
Foulkes is both a painter and a musician, whose works include landscapes, narrative tableaux, mixed-media, and portraits. He has used various mediums, making him an artist that is hard to categorize, which adds to his unique reputation. The Hammer Museum wants to expose its visitors to the artist's ideas and style, since he is often under recognized yet influential in his own right.
The exhibition roughly consists of 150 works that were contributed by U.S. and European patrons. The years worth noting are his 1960s' artwork, featuring emotionally-charged paintings, rock and postcard paintings, cartoons and drawings. Along with the exhibition is a video that shows Foulkes playing his Machine, an instrument made up of horns, organ pipes, percussion and more.
Visitors will get a chance to view and purchase the exhibition catalog, created by curator Ali Subotnick, art critic Jim Lewis, and writer Jason Weiss. They can also listen to the free audio guide, which can be downloaded on the iPhone or Android, or rented at the Hammer Museum Store.
