Out of Asia: Art and Culture in pre-World War II Los Angeles

This symposium examines the fertile period of Los Angeles arts and culture between World Wars I and II and considers how Asia—defined very broadly—impacted, influenced, and shaped the cultural consciousness of Los Angeles. Join a distinguished group of speakers for a discussion moderated by Professor Valerie Matsumoto of the UCLA Department of History. Bill Estrada, curator of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, will discuss the various "Chinatowns" of Los Angeles in the 1930s; Karin Higa, senior curator of the National Museum, will examine artist Hideo Date and his milieu; and Bill Stern, director of the newly-formed Museum of California Design will talk about the Japanese influence on architecture and design in Southern California.

In conjunction with the exhibition Living in Color: The Art of Hideo Date
