Representing L.A.

The Main’s two current artists-in-residence, Lauren Halsey and Star Montana, have art practices explicitly rooted in L.A. Halsey’s large-scale sculptures and environments combine materials found in her neighborhood with elements of fantasy and Funk, while Montana’s intimate portraits show the lives of people in East L.A. and South L.A. In this talk, the artists discuss their unique ways of representing and celebrating communities within the city.
