Explore the sculpture and installation work of artist Lauren Halsey, winner of the coveted Mohn Award.

Every two years, on the occasion of the Made in L.A. biennial, the Hammer Museum honors artistic excellence by presenting the Mohn Award to an artist whose work in the exhibition is exceptional. The 2018 winner was Lauren Halsey for her piece The Crenshaw District Hieroglyph Project (Prototype Architecture), a large structure made of plywood and gypsum which she covered in bas-relief carvings. These carvings--depicting graffiti, community members, and other elements significant to South Central Los Angeles where Halsey grew up--evoke the hieroglyphs found on an Egyptian temple. This sculpture is a prototype for a larger version of the work that will incorporate carvings by community members. Deeply tied to the culture of her city, Halsey is inspired by other Los Angeles artists such as Betye Saar, Noah Purifoy, and John Outterbridge, echoing their assemblages in her installations and collages. This book also showcases a range of Halsey's earlier work as well as original texts by poet and performer Douglas Kearney and curator Anne Ellegood, as well as an interview between the artist and curator Erin Christovale.
