Zócalo Public Square and KCRW present, “What Is the Value of Art?,” in partnership with NeueHouse and Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.
The week before the international art fair Frieze Los Angeles descends upon Southern California, contemporary artist and activist Andrea Bowers; artist, cultural organizer, and co-founder of Meztli Projects Joel Garcia; and director and CEO of Lucas Museum of Narrative Art Sandra Jackson-Dumont visit Zócalo to consider the value of art beyond a financial investment. Writer Helen Molesworth moderates a discussion about how the art world can continue to leverage the money and attention around art fairs into support for social change.
Followed by a reception with music by KCRW DJ Novena Carmel at NeueHouse at the historic Bradbury Building at 304 S. Broadway, several blocks north of the California Center, from 8:30-10:30 PM.
