Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is pleased to welcome the quarterly contemporary art journal, X-TRA, for an afternoon of sketching and conversation in the garden, celebrating the launch of their Summer issue.
In this issue of X-TRA, Travis Diehl and Brica Wilcox present “Realized Sketches in Two Dimensions,” featuring 20 artists’ sketches for time-based work. This new collection of sketches takes after X-TRA’s Vol. 4, No. 4, a full issue of sketches, brought together by Karin Lanzoni in 2002. This issue features sketches by: Meriem Bennani, Jonathan Billet, Jibz Cameron, Poppy Coles, Danielle Dean, Simone Forti, Liz Magic Laser, Adam Linder, João Enxuto & Erica Love, Shana Moulton, Kelly Nipper, Galeria Perdida, Maria Petschnig, Jon Rafman, Lucy Raven, Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs, Rasmus Røhling, Miljohn Ruperto, Tarwuk, and Andrew Norman Wilson.
This event is free and not ticketed. Drawing paper and pens provided. Refreshments and X-TRA’s too!
