The Hammer Museum
During his residency at the Hammer Museum, Mexican artist Yoshua Okón created a two-channel video installation, Octopus, on view until the end of the week. In this sociological commentary, Guatemalan Day Laborers act out combative poses, writhe on the ground military-style, and stand on guard in shopping carts in the parking lot of a Los Angeles Home Depot.
