Harmony Hammond

Queer Abstraction, installation view, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS (2019)

Harmony Hammond included in Queer Abstraction at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS.

The institution's press release follows: 

Alternative identities, desires and communities are explored through the artists’ manipulation of color, form, texture and materials. Many of these works defy the categories of painting or sculpture, while others camouflage reality in the guise of abstraction. Underlying the art is a fundamental and defiant commitment to pushing the limits of abstract art’s capability. Queer Abstraction invites all visitors to leave preconceived notions of the body, sex, gender and love behind and discover abstraction’s queer possibilities.

Organized by the Des Moines Art Center. The Art Center’s presentation was funded in part by the Andy Warhol Foundation and Sotheby’s. The Nerman Museum presentation is funded in part by the Jedel Family Foundation.
