Adam Linder: Who is Surfing Who
Every two years, on the occasion of the Made in L.A. biennial, the Hammer Museum honors artistic excellence by administering the Mohn Award to an artist whose presentation of work in the exhibition is exceptional. The 2016 winner was choreographer Adam Linder, whose performance and accompanying installation Kein Paradiso premiered at the Hammer. This elegant monograph focuses on the stage works that Linder has produced to date, including photographs, printed ephemera, costumes, and excerpts of original scripts authored by Linder. In addition, the book features contextual essays, written by individual authors in response to each of the five stage works.
