Description

In today’s Los Angeles, housing is expensive, dining is fancy, and posh, international galleries rule the art scene. But in the 1980s and ’90s, it was cheap rents, house parties, underground fashion, and a trio of Latino gay bars that inspired photographer Reynaldo Rivera. “These men and women live[d] on in a silvery landscape of makeshift glamour…a glamour salvaged from old, late-night movies from cinema’s golden age in Hollywood and Mexico City,” writes Chris Kraus in her Granta profile of Rivera. Join Kraus, Scripps’ Mary Routt Chair in Creative Writing, for a conversation with Rivera about his arresting images of a subculture—and a city—that has long since disappeared.
