Meg Cranston

FALL 2005

Meg Cranston is an artist, writer, and curator. At CCA, she will present an experimental lecture/performance, “Riot at Pandora’s Box: The Secret Art History of Sunset.” Compiled from interviews with artists in Los Angeles from 1960 to the present, Cranston’s lecture/performance explores one of the most famous streets in modern times. Considered as the literal and metaphoric embodiment of the city, Sunset Boulevard has been used by artists as a location to engender and perform their relationship to popular urban life, culture, and mass media
