Mark Bradford's Finding Barry
Since 1999, the museum has commissioned artists to create site-specific projects for the Hammer Museum Lobby Wall. American artist Mark Bradford created 'Finding Barry,’ 2015, by excavating through the 100+ layers of paint on the wall. Barry refers to Barry McGee, one of the earliest Lobby Wall artists. Bradford's rendering of a US map shows the population of people diagnosed with AIDS per 100,000 in each state as of 2009.
