Description

Zócalo Public Square and MOCA present: Were the 90s LA's Golden Age? at MOCA Grand Avenue on April 28,2016 The 1990s were a rough time in Los Angeles, marked by AIDS, record homicides, a recession, the unrest spurred by Rodney King’s beating, the Northridge earthquake, and Prop 187. But fears that the city was about to break inspired unprecedented levels of creativity, growth, and civic engagement. Inspired by the exhibition Don’t Look Back: The 1990s at MOCA, a panel of L.A. observers asks: How might we recapture that ’90s spirit? This program inaugurates a quarterly collaboration between Zócalo Public Square and MOCA. Moderator: Gregory Rodriguez Panelists: Todd Boyd Fernando Guerra Harold Meyerson Helen Molesworth
