In conjunction with his new exhibit at the Skirball Museum, Gary Baseman holds an evening discussion about the roots and inspiration of his work.
From the website:
Listen as Gary Baseman discusses his recent travels to his parents' hometowns in Eastern Europe and dissects the complex history of the area, a place vastly transformed from when his family called it home.
The artist reflects on the experience and on his own heritage, and shares tales he heard of "mythical creatures" while on this journey.
A Q&A and book signing will follow. Check the Skirball website for more information.
