Awash in the Airlight: The Light of LA and the Art Movement It Helped to Spawn, a talk by Lawrence Weschler @ SITE Santa Fe

What was it about Southern California in the sixties and seventies that helped to spawn the
distinctive Light and Space movement in which Helen Pashgian was to play such an important
part? Some have suggested the surfing culture, or the car culture, or the proximity to
Hollywood and the aerospace industry, or the distance from all the pressures and orthodoxies
of the art scenes in Europe and New York (and conversely the exposure to wafting Pacific and
Asian influences), all of which clearly apply. But in addition, renowned author Lawrence
Weschler will also consider certain seminal qualities in the Light of LA itself.
