March 22, 2022

Join MacArthur Fellow and USC Annenberg Professor Josh Kun with the series historians—the Autry’s associate curator Tyree Boyd-Pates, Pitzer professor Suyapa Portillo Villeda, and USC professor Natalia Molina—to discuss this new collaboration with KPCC & LAist that blends live music, live conversation, and archival research from the Los Angeles Public Library’s archives.

Evoke LA is a collaboration with KPCC & LAist and ALOUD, a program of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, that brings L.A. musicians, historians, and journalists together to interact with various objects from the Los Angeles Public Library archives, creating new live performances and provocative discussions. Curated by MacArthur Fellow and USC Annenberg Professor Josh Kun, programs will be available on-demand on their release dates and will subsequently air on KPCC 89.3.
