This online Hammer Museum program includes an extended excerpt from Hyperway, 2018, by Los Angeles-based video artist Christopher Richmond, followed by a conversation between the artist and Hammer curatorial assistant Nicholas Barlow. Known for working with Hollywood style production values to present surrealist, sci-fi inflected narratives, Richmond’s new work offers a psychedelic respite from an estranged relationship to reality. Thursday, August 6, 5pm; free; hammer.ucla.edu.
