hammer_museum And just like that, #PeoplesUN is over. Today we debated women's wages, marijuana legalization, and tax benefits. We blessed the bees. We had therapy sessions between countries like Israel and Palestine + Argentina and the U.K. We even learned new phrases in different languages. But above all, we had way too much fun, and we proved that everyday citizens have the power to change the world. Thank you @_pedro_reyes_! [ by @agstenian] 2d

hammer_museum In the wake of the recent #BaltimoreRiots and the anniversary of the #RodneyKing riots, we’re sharing this work from our Take It or Leave It exhibition last year. In his large, collaborative drawings, Rirkrit Tiravanija taps global historical events that incite mass demonstrations to show the ongoing human desire for equality and fairness and the need to speak truth to power. For #TIOLI, he made a new work focusing on the 1992 L.A. riots, which broke out 23 years ago this week. #BlackLivesMatter #tbt 5d

hammer_museum Can a plank of wood also be a piece of furniture? #ThomasHeatherwick's studio experimented with folding long pieces of paper at slight angles, finding that 2 ends could go past each other instead of colliding. And voilà, an ordinary looking plank becomes a side table or seat! Hear about the studio's process by Thomas Heatherwick himself on Thursday, followed by an after party sponsored by @sapphireginusa. # 7d

hammer_museum #DoHoSuh's "Rubbing/Loving Project: Metal Jacket" recalls an ancient Korean costume, but is based on the lining of a U.S. military jacket. The past surfaces in the present in Suh’s incarnation of the Asian proverb “A tiger dies and leaves his coat. A man dies and leaves his name.” The #Apparitions artist joins us for a talk on April 28-- don't miss it! 2w
