Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Anne Ellegood lives and works in Los Angeles as the Senior Curator at the Hammer Museum. Ellegood has a long line of curating at impressive institutions, including her work as the Associate Curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, followed by four years at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC.
Outside of her work with the Hammer Museum, Ellegood is a frequent contributor to Artforum, Mousse, Tate, and other art publications. Ellegood was recently named a Face to Watch by the Los Angeles Times for her work with the Hammer Museum, focusing on the importance of her 2014 show called, “Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology”. The show features 35 American artists who Ellegood believes have made real impact with the way they have challenged the way our culture thinks about art.
