Stop into the Hammer Museum to be part of the debates….LA Art Party does NOT endorse any political party, but since this is an art installation….here ya go!
Jonathan Horowitz’s Your Land / My Land: Election ’12 serves as a convening space where visitors can watch and discuss the unfolding presidential election and its aftermath.
Presented simultaneously at several museums throughout the country, the installation uses red and blue carpeting to divide the Hammer’s Lobby Gallery into two distinct spaces. Fox News is broadcasting live on a monitor in the red zone, while the monitor on the blue side is tuned to MSNBC, directing our attention to the increasingly rigid two-party system that defines US politics today. As the artist notes, in spite of movements such as the Tea Party and Occupy, the country remains “swathed in red and blue with no purple in between.”
The Hammer’s Lobby Gallery will be open during regular museum hours, including for the presidential and vice presidential debates, and will remain open late on election night, November 6. Admission to the Lobby Gallery is free.
On view: September 30th – November 18th
