As geopolitics and economies shift toward the Pacific Rim, Los Angeles is ideally situated to play a key role in addressing common regional and global challenges.

President Barack Obama's act of restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba at the end of 2014 could drastically change the cultural and artistic course of the island. But Cuban artists have used video and new media to explore its past and contemplate its future for decades. The new exhibit “Hope,” which opens to the public Sunday, Sept. 17, at the art laboratory ESMoA (El Segundo Museum of Art), looks at Cuban society through new media art, from the 1970s to present day with apps, projections and other installations. 

A new exhibition features works from Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo by artists of Japanese heritage.

As geopolitics and economies shift toward the Pacific Rim, Los Angeles is poised to play a key role in addressing common global challenges, from climate change and immigration, to the health and well-being of our citizens. With its growing profile on the world stage, it is essential that Los Angeles, both its citizens and government, develop a deeper understanding of the foundations of the city’s global engagement.
