Course Description

A theoretical course taught from the perspective of an artist that examines sites of public memory, murals and sacred sights in the City of Los Angeles as a basis for cultural insight, memorialization and historic preservation. This course uses Los Angeles as a textbook on urban space issues such as: who is the “public”; what is “public/sacred space”; what are sites of public memory; what is the value of historic preservation? The course includes both in-class lectures and field trips that examine what defines a neighborhood and how cultural expression shapes public space. This course is open to non-UCLA students. Please see the course in the UCLA catalogue for more information.
