LOS POBLADORES

 

Los Angeles' rich cultural history came to life in L.A. Founding Families, an interactive work developed by artists from Duende CalArts and the CalArts Center for New Performance. This series of images was created to be part of one of the performative experiences of L.A. Founding Families. It focused o the 'pobladores,' the original 22 families to migrate to Los Angeles from Mexico, and an examination of how these diverse cultural origins connect to modern-day Los Angeles, its current residents, and contemporary immigration policy. This site-specific project took place at the Picho House in El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument.
