Events | Rebirth of Cultural Spaces in Post-COVID Time: Night of Ideas at the French Residence

Los Angeles | May 9, 2022 | 8:00 PM (PDT)

The Covid pandemic seems to have transformed our way of life. A new organization of time and of our social practices has emerged and evolved under the effect of the fluctuations of the restrictions imposed by the sanitary constraints. Our relationship to culture has also been modified: confinement has limited access to many physical cultural goods and has eliminated access to out-of-home culture. Has this new spatio-temporal framework, centered on the home, permanently modified our practice of leisure? Do cultural institutions question their role in society and their relationship with the public considering these changes?

Paleontologist Luis Chiappe of the National History Museum Los Angeles, Regan Pro, Deputy Director of Public Programs and Social Impact at Lucas Museum of Narrative Art and Benno Herz, acting Program Director at the Thomas Mann House will get into conversation about the rebirth of cultural spaces in post-COVID time . Moderated by L.A. Times journalist and author Patt Morrison.

This panel is part of Villa Albertine's 2022 Night of Ideas & presented by the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles. The conversation will take place on May 9, Europe Day, at the Résidence de France, Los Angeles.
