DESCRIPTION

“L.A. Influential” features a panel of native Los Angeles artists discussing the current interest in LA’s diverse subcultures’ impact on art as demonstrated in exhibitions such as MOCA’s "Art in the Streets" and “Street Credential” at the PMCA. Along with the discussion of L.A.’s varying subcultures, the panel will also address the significance of SoCal both in terms of its historical indigenous art movements in conjunction with its regional environmental changes - light, color, space, heat, sprawl, and motion of a constantly shifting contemporary backdrop.  

Each artist on the panel draws on their distinct backgrounds and connection to now thriving art scenes that were born in Southern California, including their varying mix of influences from the disparate but related worlds of music, street, surf, skate and high and low art.

Panelists: Chaz Bojorquez, Brad Howe, Dave Tourjé, John Van Hamersveld, Norton Wisdom, and Gary Wong, moderated by Mary Anna Pomonis.

Please note seating is limited.
