Are you going on a vacation and need a houseplant sitter? Or do you just feel like your plants deserve a vacation? Well, the Hammer museum in LA invites you to their Cultural Retreat for Plants. Throughout August participants plants will be installed in the light flooded linbrook terrace, and presented with a series of readings, performances and musical events for plants. Plant portraiture will be provided by Lisa Anne Auerbach. And the Hammer will be providing a dedicated phone line connected to a loudspeaker should you wish to call in and speak to your plants. Think about it, if you were a plant, wouldn't you want a vacation?
