@ The GETTY CENTER- How Los Angeles Invented the World.
From movies to pop music to surfing, Los Angeles has created many of the world's most iconic cultural symbols. The rest of the world has eagerly lapped up the fruits of L.A.'s labor, helping turn a group of high schoolers from Hawthorne into the Beach Boys, one of the most beloved rock bands of all time, and embracing movies that provide a gritty, yet romanticized glimpse into L.A. life. What social, political, economic, and historical forces made the city and its cultural scene flourish? How did L.A. culture come to stand in for America in music, books, film and art? The J. Paul Getty Museum and Zócalo Public Square present a half-day conference exploring how Los Angeles's unique culture was built and how it spread to the rest of the world.
