Additional Information

The Urban Humanities Symposium (Salon 02) is an annual event that brings together faculty, staff, students and alumni of the UCLA Urban Humanities Initiative. 

Friday May 24th is the launch event celebrating the opening of Salon 02 exhibition. Curated projects on view creatively engage, challenge, or revise the idea of the plan. Presenters will hold a series of gallery talks throughout the evening, concluding with a performance by the Earth Girl Helen Brown Center for Planetary Intelligence Band.

SALON 02 is organized and curated by a group of alumni from the UCLA Urban Humanities Initiative. Its aim is to foster continued engagement with urban humanities theory, pedagogies, and community both within and outside the academy. Part symposium, part exhibition, part celebration, SALON 02 showcases the making of urban humanities in Los Angeles, presenting projects blurring the edges of our respective disciplines in the humanities, urban research, and design.  SALON 02 collectively represents the ongoing work of urban humanists engaged in remaking and reimagining the city.
