Listening to L.A. Rock ‘N’ Roll Realities
The heart and soul of rock ‘n’ roll is the city of LA. This exhibition explores LA rock through several major focal points—ChicanX rock ‘n’ roll, Laurel Canyon singer songwriters, LA punk, Punk musician Alice Bag (aka “Violence Girl”), and contemporary LA women rockers. Young people in LA not only learned to support each other by making music, but also created countercultures and subcommunities that expressed the voices and values of signiﬁcant groups of people. Their music provides insights into a speciﬁc time and into how music shaped identity for particular groups. Our curation aims to highlight the core importance of rock, both historical and current, and to serve as a reminder of the rich, diverse background and profound depth of LA music.
