If you haven’t started listening to A.G. Geiger Presents: Tales from the LA Art Underworld podcast, you are missing out! There are several terrific new conversations up now and all the episodes are archived so you can catch up!
What did Man Ray have to do with Elizabeth Short aka the Black Dahlia? How did the LAPD photo archive narrowly escape destruction on the orders of the LA Fire Dept.? How do you walk an archivist’s curatorial tightrope and how do you gain access to photograph inside the homes of notorious LA gang members?
Fototeka Gallery founder Robin Blackman and photographer Merrick Morton discuss their successful efforts to bring the LAPD photo archive literally back into the light of day and what the photos tell us about ourselves as a society and about LA history.
A.G. Geiger Presents, Tales from the LA Art Underworld is produced in conjunction with the spectacular Mayfair Hotel, and the music and artist management company Regime 72.
