Please join us for a conversation with Jonathan Spaulding, former Vice President of exhibitions and Executive Director at the Autry Museum, and Luis C. Garza, photojournalist, independent curator, and exhibition concept originator of Siqueiros in Los Angeles: Censorship Defied. Topics discussed will include the Siqueiros exhibition they mounted at the Autry in 2010, the difficulties in preserving Siqueiros' work, and the challenges in displaying political and cultural activism through art in public spaces. They will also discuss the role of the museum in each of these topics including Garza’s participation in the upcoming exhibition project, Pacific Standard Time: Latin America/Los Angeles, PST-LA/LA.
