Monica Majoli: Houseguest: Shadows Fall Down and Hammer Projects: David Hartt at Hammer Museum from Sat, Aug 21, 2021 to Sun, Jan 2, 2022 ( Exhibition )

Houseguest is a series of exhibitions in which an artist is invited to curate an installation from the Hammer collections and the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts. Los Angeles–based artist Monica Majoli's selections confront the body and include a Japanese woodcut from the 1920s and Christ in Rembrandt’s etching Descent from the Cross by Torchlight (1654).

David Hartt's The Histories (Old Black Joe) brings together three figures from the 19th century: the self-taught American landscape painter Robert S. Duncanson (1821–1872), the only Black member of the Hudson River school; Michel-Jean Cazabon (1813–1888), the first internationally recognized painter from Trinidad; and Stephen Foster (1826–1864), a white American composer of the song "Old Black Joe." Organized by Aram Moshayedi, Robert Soros Curator, with Nicholas Barlow, curatorial assistant.
