Opening in conjunction with the Hammer Museum’s Witch Hunt, Beverly Semmes’ High Heels marries new paintings created in 2021 with a fabric sculpture dating from 1997, highlighting the artist’s long-held interest in vulnerable bodies and how they are presented. Made 24 years apart, the pairing exemplifies conceptual and visual continuities within Semmes practice. Together, the works highlight the tension between the female body and a woman's agency over it —a battleground where power is parsed and exacted.

Artist Greg Smith thinks there are just too many words. To narrow things down, he'll adopt an awkward group of 2048 words (a nod to cryptocurrency seed phrases), short on plurals, verb tenses, articles, and conjunctions, among other things. Sculptures, frilly outfits, and large wax banners will carry the marks of the artist/translator's efforts to work with this unsatisfactory word list. But it's not all constraint, as conversations, famous quotes, random thoughts, banking, and slush funds interweave, for better or worse. Wise words from the group of 2048: "All know about that hard ship two carry across language."

This dreamy softness aligns with O’Neil’s imagery: expansive, enigmatic landscapes inhabited by the masses. The show will include Robyn O’Neil’s largest drawing to date.
