About this event

PLEASE REMEMBER, EVENTBRITE TICKET SALES CLOSE 48 HOURS BEFORE BREAKFAST. THERE WILL BE NO WALK-INS AT THE DOOR.

VACCINATION REQUIREMENT: Out of a concern for health and safety, we are requiring all attendees to be COVID vaccinated at least 14 days prior to visiting the LABC.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Born in 1955 in Hamburg, Germany, Sven Kirsten moved to Los Angeles in 1982 to become a cinematographer. After attending the AFI he began shooting music videos and TV movies in Los Angeles and beyond.

It was this love for visuals that inspired Sven to collect and photograph the remnants of the forgotten culture of Polynesian pop in America, leading him to identify the Tiki as its icon. As a hunter and gatherer of lost artifacts and ephemera of this phenomenon, he began to see the pattern of a unique art form.

Kirsten has become the foremost authority on Polynesian Pop, having authored 4 books on the subject and curated a sellout museum exhibition on American Tiki at the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris.

ABOUT THE CLUB: Founded in 1925, the Los Angeles Breakfast Club still thrives with food, friendship, and fun. Our meetings are held in our clubhouse, Friendship Auditorium, located at 3201 Riverside Drive, near the corner of Los Feliz Boulevard, in Griffith Park. Best described as a variety show, attendees enjoy a catered breakfast, silly songs, club traditions, and an interesting presentation from a guest speaker.

Please arrive between 6:45 - 7:00 AM sharp! Doors close at 7:15 AM. Your admission includes a buffet breakfast and enjoyment of our 96-year-old weekly variety show.
