“Witch Hunt is a presentation of powerful projects by 16 radical and brilliant artists. Connie and Anne have dedicated much of their curatorial careers to supporting the practices of women artists and the political urgencies facing women more broadly. Witch Hunt makes a major contribution to the discussion.” said Hammer Museum director Ann Philbin.
“Anne and I felt it was urgent to center women artists in Africa, South and Central America, and within the United States, expanding the scope of feminist art history and practice we had previously written about and curated. It’s exciting to collaborate with the international list of artists in Witch Hunt, many of whom are showing their work for the first time in Los Angeles.” said Connie Butler.
Anne Ellegood says, “Connie and I started talking about this exhibition many years ago, and it is thrilling to finally see it coming to life. While COVID delayed the original dates of Witch Hunt, the artists’ timely, critical, and essential projects in some sense feel even more vital today, and we are proud to showcase their important works. At ICA LA, we are delighted to be collaborating with the Hammer to present Witch Hunt at both of our museums, co-produce a range of public programs, and cross-pollinate our audiences.”
