L.A. Intersections at the Broad

January 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Description: Join us after hours at The Broad for L.A. Intersections, a two-part festival-style series celebrating organic music and spoken word scenes that have emerged in Los Angeles including punk, jazz, rap, noise, and the culturally infused experimentation led by a new generation of Filipinx artists. We’ve gathered iconic performers who shaped Los Angeles culture through The Desolation Center events, which inspired Burning Man, Lollapalooza, and Coachella; The World Stage, which has kept the language of jazz thriving for generations of musical and literary artists in South LA; The Good Life Cafe, which became synonymous for community within our grassroots hip hop and rap scenes; and Cathay De Grande and Raji’s, the city’s raucous punk clubs. Added to this eclectic mix are Filipinx artists whose contributions to the performance landscape of Southern California over the past decade look at spectacle and experimentation through an indigenous lens by exploring the relationships between settler colonialism, migration, and the Filipinx diaspora. Experience stages on two floors of the museum featuring live music, movement, and readings, check out the collection exhibition Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog) featuring 21 local artists, and catch the artist performance interventions in the galleries. L.A. Intersections presents the musicians, writers, and movement artists who have helped position Los Angeles at the vanguard of cutting-edge culture.
