TASTEMAKERS & EARTHSHAKERS Closing Program

Join us on Feb. 25th! Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Tastemakers & Earthshakers Closing Program: Notes from Los Angeles Youth Culture, 1943 – 2016, this day of events gathers key individuals from L.A.’s kaleidoscopic youth cultures to underscore themes explored within the exhibition. This program includes a roundtable discussion about youth social spaces, a film screening and discussion about the influence of Morrissey Official in Southern California, a dance demonstration featuring innovators of West Coast Locking-Popping, and is the last opportunity to visit the galleries before the exhibition’s closing.

Organized in collaboration with the Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles (LACLA), Chicano International Film Festival (ChIFF), and Travel Tips for Aztlan on KPFK 90.7 FM, this session will focus on the impact that Morrissey has had on Chicano Storytellers of Los Angeles. The session will begin with a film screening of Is It Really So Strange?, by artist & filmmaker William E. Jones, followed by a panel discussion with members of creative arts movements who feature Morrissey as their inspiration.
Panelists include: Chloe Diaz, an actress and devout Moz/Smiths fan who recently appeared in CASA 0101’s production of Teatro Moz; Alexandro D. Hernández, an ethnomusicologist, musician, co-founding member of Mariachi Manchester and ¡Aparato!, and current instructor for Chicanx-Latinx Music in the U.S. and Music of Latin America at UCLA; and Rosy Reyes, administrator of the We Are Mozzerians/Mozzerians Around The World – All Things Morrissey/Smiths Facebook fan page ~
