The Hammer’s new exhibition focuses on institutional critique, or art that examines its own position in art institutions like galleries or museums, in relationship to appropriation art. It includes some heady standards, like the Museum Highlights video of artist Andrea Fraser giving a docent tour, and more visceral work, like Sue William’s cartoonishly confessional paintings.
