To further discuss the impact of LACPS, the Fisher Museum of Art will host a day-long symposium to explore the history, current state, and future potential of artist-run/alternative spaces and organizations; engage contemporary artists to define how they self-
identify within the broader cultural community; and forecast the shifting nature and interdependence of the multiple communities that define the region’s cultural identity.
