STYLE WARS: Three conversations on the power of style

“California Cool”

June 2, 2015
Doors: 6 pm
Talk: 7–8 pm

Claire Daigle, Sampada Aranke, Ella Diaz, Genine Lentine, Asuka Ohsawa, with moderator Nicole Archer.

“California Cool”: Why is it that certain forms of composure, and lifestyle seem eminently more possible in the California sun, outside the shadows of a place like New York? This conversation asks how space and style inform each other, and how ‘California’ has come earn the love of so many artists and musicians. From lowrider culture to Ed Ruscha, beatnik HOWLs to hip hop freestyles, participants will work to tell the Golden State’s story through a diverse set of cultural practices and imaginaries.
