> DESCRIPTION

Join us for a discussion between T. Kelly MasonTyler Cassity, and George Baker on funerary objects and practices in early 21st-century Los Angeles and the relationship of these to private and collective ideas of memory, space, and the expression of desire. L.A.-based artist Mason’s current project, inspired by the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park, was commissioned by the Hammer as a special project for the museum’s courtyard. Cassity is a renowned cemetarian, redefining how Americans handle death at his Hollywood Forever cemetery as well other final resting places throughout California. Baker is an associate professor of art history at UCLA, and his newest book, Lateness and Longing: On the Afterlife of Photography, will be published in 2012.

In conjunction with T. Kelly Mason’s light box installation project.
