July 13-15 | Friday-Saturday 11am-Sunset, Sunday 11am-6pm

“Running Friday through Sunday, [the Venice Beach Biennial is] a free-to-the-public, open-air art exhibition that brings together 87 artists. They include artists who usually show on the boardwalk working alongside, and sometimes in collaboration with, well-known artists (Barbara Kruger, Evan Holloway, Katie Grinnan and Nick Herman, to name a few) who usually have exhibition spaces that are more pristine and, well, less sandy.”
-The Los Angeles Times

In conjunction with Made in L.A. 2012, the Venice Beach Biennial, organized by Hammer curator Ali Subotnick, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the ‘real’ Venice Biennale in Italy and will take place July 13-15 on the Venice Beach boardwalk. This outdoor exhibition will see somewhere between 30 and 40 participating artists set up vending stands alongside the boardwalk’s usual vendors and present new bodies of work, displaying site-specific sculptures and installations, presenting live performances and even collaborating with the boardwalk’s veteran artists.
