The Hammer Museum at UCLA is hosting “Space Is the Place,” a free discussion on the displacement of low-income communities, the prison-industrial complex and economic disparity in Los Angeles. The discussion will be led by artist Lauren Halsey and Patrisse Cullors, artist, activist and co-founder of Black Lives Matter.

Halsey is one of the artists in the Hammer Museum’s “Made in L.A. 2018” and her artwork “The Crenshaw District Hieroglyph Project” centers on the legacy and preservation of her South Central community.

This event is free and open to the public. Parking can be found underneath the museum. The program is from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
