Space Is the Place: Lauren Halsey and Patrisse Cullors

Lauren Halsey’s artwork The Crenshaw District Hieroglyph Project (Prototype Architecture) centers on the legacy and preservation of her South Central community. She joins artist, activist, and Black Lives Matter cofounder Patrisse Cullors to discuss displacement of low-income communities in Los Angeles, the prison-industrial complex, and economic disparity within the city.
