Artist Ken Ehrlich and Sesshu Foster will lead a participatory walk through East L.A. Topics will include poetic interruptions, displaced monuments, the named, unnamed and unnameable.
This event is part of a four-part series Walking places: Four Walks in Los Angeles , a series of playful, absurd, critical and activity-based walks in different parts of the city that will examine the architectural landscape up close and reveal Los Angeles as a space of ghosts, projections, limits and possibilities.
Please be prepared to walk for approx. two hours. Think footwear, hats, sunscreen, water, and whatever else you’ll need to wander for a good bit.
