FLUX SCREENING SERIES

Celebrate the end of summer with the quarterly FLUX Screening Series at the Hammer Museum, which showcases innovative short films, music videos, filmmaker retrospectives and performances. The September 15th program will feature acclaimed visual artist Miwa Matreyek, who will give a free, live performance of the continuation of her Myth and Infrastructure series. Matreyek premiered this multimedia piece at the TED Conference in Oxford this past July, impressing critics and attendees with her masterful artistry as she used her shadow to interact with her projected animation. Flux will also premiere short films Crooked Arms by Brett Simon and Loved on Land, Hated on Water by Vincent Haycock. Directors Tom Kuntz, Skinny and Daniels will be on hand to speak about their videos for MGMT, Cee-Lo and The Hundred in the Hands, respectively. The Hammer Cafe and Bar will be open all night, as guests enjoy a pre-screening reception and after-party in the courtyard. This event is free and open to the public.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets are required, and are available at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office one hour prior to start time. Limit one ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.
