Art & Music of Post-Mexico

As we become more connected through systems of technology and economy, today’s artists are offered access to a wider range of knowledge and perspectives. In this program, participants will hear from curators and scholars about select works from Damián Ortega’s exhibition. In the theater, cultural critic and journalist Josh Kun will explore how the constant flow of ideas and individuals affects cultural production, as heard in today’s music from Mexico.

Kun teaches in the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California where he is the Director of the Popular Music Project. He authored Audiotopia: Music, Race, and America, which won a 2006 American Book Award, and co-authored And You Shall Know Us By the Trail of Our Vinyl: The Jewish Past As Told By the Records We’ve Loved and Lost. He is co-editor of the book series Refiguring American Music for Duke University Press. He is a contributor to The New York Times, LA Times, and Los Angeles Magazine, and has published in BOMB, Village Voice, Mother Jones, SPIN, Rolling Stone, and Mexico’s La Jornada. Kun has appeared on American Movie Classics, ABC, BBC Radio, NPR, and National Geographic. He hosted The Red Zone, Southern California’s first commercial Latin Rock radio program and in 2002 was the show’s host on MTV-español.
